Best if consumed by March-3-2013.Part of the "Session Line" winter lineup,a 60/- shilling Scottish style ale.Poured a rich deep bronze with a creamy off white 1/2 finger head that held well,great color and a nice head.Caramel and toffee reaaly stand out in the nose,it almost has a butterscotch nose to it.Obviously a malt driven palate according to style,caramel/toffee and some hints of vanilla,there is a faint smokiness to it,finishing with a lingering shortbread cookie dough note.This is a rich beer for how "small" it is,it has a light but very smooth feel.I like this alot and will likely drink the whole growler tonight.

Serving type: growler

On tap at Flying Saucer Raleigh

A - dark brownish amber with a thin, soft, white head that fades to a thin lacing

S - caramel, a bit sweet, some faint sugar, faint peat

T - caramel, peat, some smoke, earthy

M - smooth, well carbonated, medium bodied

This was a nice scottish ale. It was full-flavored and very sessionable. I was impressed that there was so much flavor in such a low-ABV beer. If you're a scottish ale fan, this is one you should try.
