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.

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.

Thanks to kjyost for this one.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle, no freshness info.

Appearance: Cherry-wood colored body, looks chestnut brown away from the light. Strong 3 finger head, slowly recedes but minimal lacing.

Smell: Caramel sweetness, peaty a bit, wisps of smoke.

Taste: Good peat, caramel, nuts, not much smoke. After initial flavor, kind of tapers off.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, midway through the end kind of falls short.

Overall: Decent overall. I'm sure it's a welcome alternative to the majority that's available where in ND.

3.06/5  rDev -9.7%

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.

On tap at JL Beers in Grand Forks, served at adequate temperature into a pint glass. Poured a rich brown, fairly clear and without much action, and therefore not much head or lacing. I've never been able to pick up much aroma in a bar, too much air moving, but some faint grain was distinguishable. Taste was on the lighter side, but for such a low ABV beer it was to be expected... some caramel malt, not all that peaty but some nuttiness perhaps. Mouth was smooth and solid for a lighter beer, went down way too easily and way too fast. If by some miracle I could replace Bud with this beer as the light easy to drink standby, I'd be perfectly happy with that. I like my Scots a bit beefier than this, but for as light a beer as it is it performs fairly well.

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.
