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.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

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.

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.
