Quick review:

My original review never set properly so somewhat from memory (but the score was from the time I had it).

Very light bodied with a focus on malts (toffee, caramel, toast) but some spicy, herbal hops for balance. Refreshing and easy to drink. Definitely sessionable but not super interesting.

S - bready. toasted malt

T - Caramel malty sweetness, a slight hit of smoke

M - Good carb. light body. very drinkable.

O - Great example of the style. really enjoying this as a post dinner brew. thanks to my bro for bringing from his road trip back from Fargo

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Translucent ruddy copper with a transient head and no lacing. Smell is faintly malt, citrus, caramel and a bit earthy. Taste is muted caramel, earth, a tad spice, some citrus. Bright carbonation a medium to light body. This beer is very mild all the way around. I like my Scottish ales with a little more oomph.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Clear copper color with half finger of head that slowly settled to a thin crown of suds. Some spotty lacing gets left down the glass during consumption.

Can smell the Golding hops with floral and herbal hints. But mostly it is caramel malt with a bit of toast to accompany the sweetness.

Flavor is not particularly interesting, but it is clean and well balanced. Hints of caramel, nuts, with light toast. Some herbal notes from the hops. Definitely on the sweeter end of the spectrum.

Light body with low carbonation. Does not do much to brighten the flavors of the beer.

Not sure I would choose this over, say a low ABV pale ale of some sort. Just does not bring enough interesting flavor. Too sweet for my palate as well.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: It has a nice deep amber color to it. It has a nice creamy off-white head that dies down somewhat fast and leaves very little lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of toasted malts, sweet caramel and some nuttiness.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some sweet caramel, light toffee, toasted malts and some nuttiness.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a decent overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by decent flavors and aromas.
