Notes/Commercial Description:
This Scottish Style Ale is brewed with 11 different malts including a healthy addition of Toasted Rye, a Smoked Irish Bog malt, and a Scottish Peated malt. Balanced by a noble German bittering hop and the addition of West coast citrus hops for flavor and aroma. The fruity note's and earthy ester's from the ale yeast create a nice contrast between the bitter hops and the sweet maltiness of this brew. Great Balance, Great Complexity, Great Drinkability.

Appeared as a typical dark reddish brown color with a thin white head. Smells of citrus and bitter aromas. Taste was relatively balanced between bitter and malt taste with an after taste of weak citrus. Unfortunately, these tastes diminished the overall flavor because the individual tastes were better than the final combination. Felt smooth and a bit flat for the Irish Red Style.
