Notes/Commercial Description:
30 IBUs - A bold Scottish ale with a complex malty body derived from roasted and crystal malts balanced with just the right combination of hops. This ale pours a deep ruby color, has a sweet malty nose with layered caramel and roasted notes and a full body. Robust yet smooth, Robert The Bruce is a malt lover’s delight.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Clear ruby-brown color with a small off-white head.

S: Soft caramel with piercing roasted and chocolate aromas. Perhaps a touch of earthy hops, but not much.

T: Fairly sweet, but balanced by raosty bitterness and semi-coffee undertones. Semi-sweet caramel middle adds some depth. Not particularly rounded, but direct and to the point.

M: Medium-bodied with lower-than-average carbonation. Sweet and clean on the finish with a touch of gentle roast.

D: Goes down pretty easily. Borderline of being a malty session beer.

Overall, I'd call this a no-frills, Scottish drinkin' ale. Perhaps I got hold of an old bottle, but the flavors just didn't seem fresh or vibrant to me. However, the taste was pretty good, so I'm inclined to give this another go in the future. Pretty solid otherwise.
