Had multiple times over a couple of days at the Firkin and Friar in Tucson, AZ.
A: Nice and dark, a little red. Not a whole lot of lacing. Poured with about an inch of light tan head, which only hung around for 2 or 3 minutes.
S: Good and malty, a lot of citrus coming from the hops. I was actually kind of surprised by this. Definitely a sweet smell, maybe a tiny little smoky scent tucked in there.
T: Nothing special. Pretty strong biscuity malt right off the bat, pretty minimal on the hop flavor, but still a tad on the sweet side.
M: Pretty full, and this one has a fair amount of carbonation to it as well, which lends itself to a fuller feel.
D: It was easy to put them back, they were perfect with a greasy sandwich or some wings, and not strong enough to sit you down after a couple.
All in all, if I'm eating a nice greasy dinner and there's not a lot of variety on tap, this is a decent choice.
Serving type: on-tap

This really is a good beer, just not totally my style. The copper color is fantastic and it has a decent flavor. Had it on tap while going through AZ and that was better. When on tap it seemed to have a little bit more of a nutty flavor that stood out to me. Of coarse I had just been hiking around Out of Africa, so that might have clouded my judgment. I still say drink some.

Lovely orange copper color with good clarity and finger and a half of khaki foam that fell off to a bit of lacing. Nose is malty sweetness, some toasty bread crust and a bit of treacle. Treacle is a sweet syrupy scent that does not resemble a fruit. it's light enough to be truly tempting. A touch fo grass and some earthy hops whisper to you. Taste is lovely.l Toasty malt, sweet and brilliantly light to the palate. There is a fruity background to this beer that I find very pleasant in scotch ales. It's light fruity and permeates the drink without taking the fanfare away from the smooth malt. Mouthfeel is lovely and fullish but creamy and dry. Decidedly malt finish with a depth that is jovial and clean. One of the better scotch ales I have tired.
Thank you Kerry4porters for the chance to try this beer.
