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.
