Pale, honey colored with a low head of off-white foam that settles out quickly. Nearly no aroma, indiscernible. Very average flavor of butter scotch malt,faint toffee, some subtle notes of smoked malt. Slick mouthfeel leads to a tingly finish. Very average beer.

It's just a Scottish ale with no spices as is often the case in Winter Ales and that is not a bad thing at all. A good balance of hop flavor with maltiness as well (I think). I'm not going to try to sound like I know what I am talking about but this just tastes good.

Amber. Malty. Sweet-ish. Medium body. Poor after taste. Lighter than most winters.
