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.
