So from the start the smell seems a little off. Its like a wetish peat smell. The taste is super super mild. Overwhelmingly mild. I have to look for the scotch for sure and it doesn't have that warming quality that I like in better scotch ales. Carbonation levels are appropriately low, but since the taste is, well watery, it doesn't really satisfy me. You can get a bit of an earthy woody feel with this beer, which is kind of attractive, but should be much stronger.

I picked this up at a gas station for $4 bucks so I'm still content. Definitely not a bold beer by any measure, but probably a good beer for anyone starting out with the genre or with micro brews in general.
