This is a really pleasant beer, tasting much lighter than a typical Scottish and for a beer of 5.4 ABV. Bell's website doesn't list a style but does not that no extra spices are added as there are with other holiday beers.

Scent, taste, and mouthfeel are all good. The carbonation is a bit high but not as bright as a pilsner. A definite malt presence.I will get this again if I can find it.

smell - sweet, piney... malty..

color - nice reddish/orangy amber... - nice thick quick foaming head..

taste - crisp, sweet, piney about a 3/3.5

should have had this during christmas, but life happened..
Bell's is usually on top of their game.. the two hearted ale is excellent... this is above average... worth a swig
