50cL clear glass bottle served in craft pub glass. Beer is rich, red in color, and translucent. Aroma is mild with just a whiff of skunk. Flavor is much better. Thin on the palate, but hits the notes of caramel, butterscotch. Neither sweet nor bitter. Very well balanced, in a decided Scotch Ale kind of way, as opposed to an English Ale kind of way. There is undoubtedly some diacetyl content here.

I like this but it's not my favorite. Too strong to session, but too simple / flat to really savor. I think it's just too "clean" for me. Still, it's a great execution of its style, and it does have its place.
