This has some flavor but lacks any smoky notes....it is a nice sessionable type of ale but has a hint of spoiled eggs on the aroma and again on the taste (more so on the nose). Not real strong but just enough to signify something is off.

It also has a real strong nutty characteristic that reminds of pecans...some mild sweet cookie dough notes as well. Body is on the light side of medium...easy drinker....

I was more impressed with the IPA I had on tap. This is out of bottle and contract brewed at Sand Creek. I think the kegs come from there too but I am not certain. They have a very uninformative website and facebook site.

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.

Serving type: can

Served on tap into a shaker glass.

A- Poured a clear and dark reddish brown color, off-white soapy head that left minimal lace.

S- Very light with some notes of caramel and honey sweetness.

T- Really rich caramel and toffee notes, quite a bit of honey sweetness, and light chocolate notes.

M- Very smooth, creamy, soft carbonation, dry, and medium to fuller bodied for the style.

O- A very nice and traditional tasting scottish ale. Ever time I have a scottish ale, I wish more breweries would make one.

Serving type: on-tap

Not much to say about it other than being malty with very little hop presence. To me it's too watery, but the malts are nice. Pretty balanced, good beer for those new to craft brews.

Fargo Brewing has better offerings, this one is designed for mass appeal.
