Poured a muddy brownish-orange with a finger of eggshell head. Weak aroma of toffee and hints of grassy lemon.

Moderate carbonation and a full, sticky mouthfeel. Toffee, dark fruit, and a bit of cocoa up front followed by honey, biscuit, and light spice on the finish.

This one is all malt but isn't too sweet -- the flavors come together nicely.

Serving type: can

A: 1/8" white head that dissipated quickly over deep amber liquid.

S: Grassy hops and yeast. Not too much going on here.

T: Slightly citrusy with some grassy flavours and barley malt. Not much to it.

M: Thin, watery and minimal carbonation.

O: This certainly doesn't lift my kilt.

Had a bottle from AJ's in Tucson. This is just a nice, clean Scottish ale with mild caramel and a touch of roast. The aroma, like the flavor, is all malt, but with more of a bready bent to it. The softer caramel taste rolls over your tongue with a lighter carbonation and a very slight herbal, earthy edge. I wouldn't call it peaty, but it's close. Worth a try.

12 oz. can poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass. Golden Amber in color with insane clarity. Fairly hard pour produces a slightly off white colored head that's got a lot of different sized bubbles, looks creamy. Not much in the way of lacing, but still a pretty god looking beer.

Smell is petty good, not that strong though. Got some sweet malt action going on and a little earthy. Some slight fruitiness, darker fruits.

Taste is a step up. Reasonably malty, sort of bready (brown bread), a little nutty and some darker fruitiness that also is a little tart/tangy. Pretty good overall. Not really that typical to the style in my opinion, but pretty unique.

Mouthfeel is pretty good. I find it pretty clean and crisp, probably the cleanest Scottish Style Ale I've ever had. Pretty drinkable . Overall it's pretty tasty. I like Scottish Ales and was happy to get a can of this. Thanks huadog for the sweet extra!
