look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A pour right down the middle didn't produce much of a head, maybe ¼" , what little there was, gave some reasonable lacing, hazy amber. Distinct scent of Scotch Whiskey hit me in the nose at the first whiff, as it rested though, more floral and grassy hints came to the surface. Taste is a nice balance of light malty molasses flavors and hops, not bitter, vanilla, quite nice. Compellingly refreshing mouthfeel and drinkabilty.

A very good beer, one that I could keep coming back to.
