3.25/5  rDev -7.1%

Cloudy burnt orange body with a foamy, white head (3.25). Caramel and toasted grain aroma (3.5). Mildly sweet, very faint roasted grain flavor; a bit of orange and caramel; low-key hop bitterness (3.25). Medium body yet feels somewhat weak and watery (3.25).

Not bad but far from being a beer I'd run back to. Weak and underwhelming all around.There's a mild charred grain and brown sugar depth to things but it's pretty wimpy overall.

3.56/5  rDev +1.7%

Clear light copper color with a small off-white head that turns to just a skin quickly but hangs around and leaves some decent lacing.

The Aroma is caramel malt with a hint of warm bread.

The taste is also light caramel malt with hints of peat smoke and a bit of fruitiness - apple, I think.

Light-medium bodied, smooth and easily drinkable.

Altogether a bit light on the "Scottish" style but a nice enjoyable brew on it's own merits.
