Appearance: 3.75 | Smell: 3.5 | Taste: 3.75 | Mouthfeel: 3.75 | Overall: 3.75
A: The beer is slightly hazy brownish amber in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short off white head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides.
S: Light to moderate aromas of nutty and dark malts are present in the nose; hints of caramel become noticeable as the beer warms up.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is rather malty and has flavors of nutty malts along with hints of caramel and toffee along with a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is nice and malty. It has just the right amount of hops to counteract any sweetness and make it rather easy to drink.

Seems a little hoppy for a Scottish ale. Strong hop aroma with english green grassy and herbal spicy notes. Certainly some sweet malt notes too that seems scottish in nature.
Darker head that settles out and leaves lacing. Nice brown with reddish highlights.
Nice mix of hops and malts. Really quite complex and interesting, but certainly British in it's presentation. I like the earthy and spicy qualities of the hops. Firm malting with hints of sweetness and roast adds a nice touch of complexity. Alcohol more background in flavor, but I'm sure it's interwoven in all that is going on.
Heavier body and smooth feel.
I guess I like this more than the average number. I find it interesting and it drinks smaller than it's actual size.

Enjoyed this 12 oz bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass.

S: Sweet caramel malt aroma.
T: Smooth caramel malty flavors that finishes on the dry side.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation
O: Solid ESB – great flavors and aromas.
