4/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

ruby amber with a good amount of carbonation coming through. Large off white head on the pour faded down to a nice fluffy one finger high pillow

The aroma was remarkably sweet. Tons of caramel evident from the very start. Good malt profile for sure, with hints of some light flowery type fragrance way in the back. Loads of caramel sugar just rippling through my taste buds, and after it warmed a bit giving way to some of the fresh meadow like earthy tone. almost a chewy like earthiness. Very good. Nice long finish, with a somewhat dry component to it, but very sweet Creamy feeling almost towards the end, there was no lack of body on this at all.

Serving type: on-tap

3.45/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Dark amber pour. 1/2 finger head with no retention and no lacing.

Very weak peat nose. Might be a 50 schilling. Moderately grainy and slightly bready.

Thinnish mouthfeel, too thin for the style. Very slight peat in the flavor and just a faint hop profile.

Easy drinker brings the score up some. Not their best effort.

Had this at Asheville Brew Non-View.
Served in a standard pint glass.
Appearance was a deep amber. Half-finger head.
Smell was not overpowering. You could smell the earthy tones and the sweet malts.
The taste was the best part. The sweet malts and and little bready with just a bit of roasty taste to it. This brew reminded me of smoking a mild cigar on my front porch.
Very smooth beer. A little disappointed with the 4% ABV. Not that it is all about the ABV though.
Overall a tasty brew that I would love to get a growler or two of. Cant wait to have this and watch my Cowboys play on Sundays.

3.85/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a deeper shade of amber, not quite copper. Some reddish hues trying to come through. Thin head leaves some light lacing behind.
Aroma- roasty toasty, caramel, malt is here!
Mouthfeel-malty goodness, caramel and a very light hop bitterness. A froth on the palate sweetens it a little more and this finishes mostly clean with some residual sweetness. Very nicely done for a scottish without being too much a malt bomb. Less than 5% abv but still has a great malt flavor profile.

3.55/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clearish, medium brown body with a small, white head.

Smell: Light aroma of malty caramel, though not much else. Can't a hint of caramel be enough for once? I say yes.

Taste: Soft flavor of toasted caramel with a very mild measure of sweetness. A fine dose of woody, spicy hops lasts into the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: A satisfactory Scottish ale, and a nice way to kick-off the evening.

Had this and all the other offerings I had at the Coxe Ave. location as it was only 2 blocks from my hotel.This offering poured a deep russet brown with a thin quick vanishing off-white head,aromas were pretty sweet some brown sugar and caramel with a roasted note.Although this listed at 4% alc. Iam thinking this may have been a little more but I didnt ask,true to style this was malt tilted brown sugar and caramel with a nice fuitiness thru to the finish.Not a world beater but it was an easy drinker with subtle flavors .
