This Scottish-style ale pours from the pint can a ruby-amber in color. Virtually no lace here.

Aroma is malty sweet. I get a toasty toffee kind of vibe here. Not bad.

Taste is mild and sweetly malty, with more toffee tones and some nuttiness. Not a very compex flavor profile here, but very drinkable and session-worthy.

Can poured into a FFF tulip

A - Chesnut brown with hints of red. Clean looking and slightly reflective. Small mocha colored head that went down to a thin layer of foam quickly

S - Smoked malt. Definitely had a smokey peat presence. There are also hints of orange peel as well as caramel malt

T - Lots of caramel malty sweetness and actually a little too sweet for my taste Initally. There is none if the smoke that you pick up in the nose. There is a slight hop presence on the finish that gives it a light orange peel that lingers on.

MF - Heavily carbonated and a bit too heavily for me with a slight syrupiness to it

O - Decent Scottish ale from Sun King. I wish it had more of the smokiness that I smelled in the nose and it wasn't so sweet.

a - poured a one finger thick fluffy, light tan head into an english pub glass that left a thin ring and sheeting throughout. the body was a bright mahogany.
s - peaty and caramel malts. no hop aroma evident but that is fine for this style.
t - caramel and toffee with some raisins and cocoa flavors.
m - medium, slick and creamy.
o - another solid beer from sun king. this was a very drinkable and pleasant beer.

A- Pours a deep amber to chestnut brown hue. Slightly hazy. About a 2 finger head that is gone quickly, but laces ok.

S- All malt, but not very prominent. Peated malt and sweet caramel notes intermingle. Fairly one-dimensional.

T- Starts off with some peated malts and moves quickly into caramel flavors. Slightly soured flavors are there too. Ends with a some dark and sweet flavors, mostly brown sugar.

M- Thin and watery. Fairly highly carbonated. Rather easy to drink, but still pretty thin and almost sticky.

Overall, this one let me down quite a bit. A very thin and watery version of a Scotch Ale. Wished this one was heavier on the flavors it has and thicker.
