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.

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.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy brownish amber with a lot of bubbles. About one finger of off white head that fades into a thin patch.

Smell: A toasty and fairly sweet malt forward aroma with hints of chocolate, caramel, and nuts. Toasted barley malt with bready hints of biscuit, toasted bread, chocolate, caramel, toffee, nuts, smoke, and yeast. Sweet hints of brown sugar. Subtle earthy hop hints. A solid malty aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a nicely toasty and sweet malt driven taste with notes of caramel, chocolate, and nuts. Toasted barley malt with notes of biscuit, toast, caramel, chocolate, toffee, nuts, yeast, and slight smoke. Sweet notes of brown sugar with a little vanilla. Hops are very light. A solid malty session taste.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Very creamy, silky, and smooth.

Overall: A pretty decent light session version of a Scottish ale. Nice creamy and toasty malt flavors.

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.

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.
