Pours a clear reddish-copper with a thin but dense tan head. Smells sweet and....murky somehow. If that's possible. It has a sharply sour finish to the smell. Taste is much better, though. Starts with a bit of fruit up front, like sour cherries. It gets dry from there. Very dry. Slight hops on the finish, which is a nice balance to the malt. The malt isn't very sweet. At first I would have said it lacked the peat of a scottish ale but as the beer has warmed, i revise that statement. Definite peat and very delicate. A nice feat and it makes for a flavor that addresses the gripe I frequently have of Scottish ales, that they just demand too much of you. Mouthfeel is slightly oily, not so much as to prevent it from being a refreshing drink Nice carbonation. Drinkability? Hard to drink a lot of them with that bone-dry finish. A very good beer and an interesting cross of styles but not something that will move into my regular rotation.
