4.75/5 rDev +26.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Presentation: 14.9 fl. oz. can with widget. (Pub Draught Ale)
Appearance: Rich amber, clear and clean. The head is *incredibly* creamy due to the nitro-widget. Froth is light tan in colour, very sticky and lasts all the way to the bottom.
Smell: Cold, clean nose. Some soft toasty caramel aromas. Herbal hop aromas.
Taste: Smooth, oh so damn smooth. Heavenly smooth. Sweetness and consistency on the palate could be likened to a malt milk beverage. Body is medium. Malt is light but very well pronounced with light, sweet toasted caramel flavours. Hops are delicate, herbal, flowery and blend nicely with the malt profile. Beer finishes very clean with toasted/malted milk notes in the end.
Notes: I never knew a beer in a can could be so damn good? A very toasty beer, and a lovely light Scottish Ale. I'll have another please.
Serving type: nitro-can

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.
