Straight to the point: It had a faint "band-aid" smell. The taste was malt forward with a stronger hop finish. Decent color, carbonation and mouthfeel. A decent beer though not a scotch ale. I would drink this beer, but not order it in the future.

Nothing remarkable.

Great label and name however, not sure how this got into the scotch ale category from a taste perspective. This is likely to temper my comments. Tasted more like a brown. Very clean pour and taste. Improved as it warmed.Nice looking color but not a lot of depth. Better than ave

On-tap at Beachwood I,

A: Pours a medium red brown with a light white head, some lace.

S: Roasty malt, toast, biscuit, hint of smoke.

T: Dry cracked grain bread flavour upfront. Very toasty. As the beer warms the malt flavours come together and make a very solid brew. Malt-dominated.

M: Though it is malt dominated it is still surprisingly dry. Medium-bodied at best, the beer doesn't have a huge amount of heft. Crisp carbonation, clean finish.

O: A solid winter beer, but nothing crazily good about it. I enjoyed the effort in the end, but this isn't a beer I would actively seek out.

1674th Review on BA
Draft to Mug

@Hooters of Ontario

App- When this came out, It was filled to the brim and only had a couple bubbles on the top of it. A nice swirl produced some quick fading bubbles, but not much. A nice auburn brown color that was a bit dense. Hard to tell from a frozen mug.

Smell- It was a bit muted due to being cold, but I would call this more of a strong ale. A good strong malt backbone with some caramel, some citrus and a bit of booze on the nose. Fairly strong but a bit one dimensional.

Taste- It was just an okay beer. Even as it warmed most of the flavors seemed there but just small. Malty, caramel rich and a little citrus with some what I would call, a rye spice. Like a bread or mixed with a small roggenbier note.

Mouth- A bit light of the medium side of things with a bit of a thicker medium carbontion. (A bit cold, so a bit thick) Residual flavors of the caramel and malts remain.

Drink- I wanted something new at Hooters and this was the best I could get. It was my bad to not ask for a different glass. Oh well. Still like Hangar 24 overall.
