On draught at the Smokehouse. The beer pours a hazy dark copper color with a medium beige head that diminishes steadily. Thin rings of lacing. Aroma of earthy malt, citrus and hops. Medium body with flavors of bready malt and citrusy hops, with light smoke and spice in the background. The finish is moderately bitter hops that linger awhile. Barley's does not seem to do blends very often, and I am not sure if this beer is an argument for or against them attempting it again. Overall this is an interesting beer but not one that would be at the top of my list on future visits.

Serving type: on-tap

Barley's No.2 is serving this blend of their Robert Burns Scottish Export Ale and Centennial IPA, both of which are great beers.
Served in a pint glass with minimal head. It looks like a hazy scottish ale.
The hop aroma is evident, but not as pronounced as a typical IPA. Some vanilla notes present.
This beer tastes like a hoppy scottish, not a scottish IPA. The bold hop flavors found in the Centennial IPA are a little subdued. The flavors I picked up on are toffee, pretzels, oak flavors and citrusy hops. Nice blend
Medium bodied, slightly dry finish
This is quite drinkable, with smooth flavoring that still maintains some hoppy bitterness.
Although I don't think the sum is greater than the parts, this is an interesting and tasty brew that is certainly worth a try.
