I see this beer gets very high reviews. Had two bottles of this beer the other day and to be honest I found it a bit bland. Defenitely nothing special enough to deserve all the praise it seems to be getting.

I remember having a few of cans Newcastle Brown Ale a few weeks back. This is what I find this beer is very similar to.

Pours a chestnut colour with decent head and good lacing. Little in the way of carbonation.

Smell has mainly caramelized malt, with a nutty aspect. some coffee

Taste is good, a nice complimenting balance of malt and bitterness on the end. Every bit a scottish ale. Not too sweet, there's a nice bitter finish on it. A nice coating semisweet maltiness. If its not especially deep, it is quite pleasing.

Mouthfeel is quite light, it is very refreshing and sessionable.

An easy drinking tasty scotch ale, doesn't try to be anything its not, and balanced quite well. Lacks a bit in body.
