2.58/5 rDev -22.5%
12oz bottle, no freshness date
L - ruddy brown color with a tall greyish-tan head that holds good retention
S - weaker aroma, earthy with some caramel malt and bread
T - caramel, burnt caramel as well, spice, earth, tea, bread, yeast, faint chocolate, faint smoke, a bit medicinal especially on the finish
M - overly carbonated, medium body but very full feeling with all that carbonation, finishes dry
O - another disappointment from Church Street here. Seems to be a bit infected, flavors are muddled and just not that desirable. It's not terrible, but it's definitely not something I want to spend my money on.

The Church Street Scottish Ale is decent...but not spectacular. The beer poured a hazy brownish amber with very thin head that is not lacing. The scent had a nice maple flare and typical scottish push. The taste is a decent balanced beer with sweet malt base. The mouthfeel is no quite medium..but not light either. There is a smooth carbonation present. Overall the beer is a nice session beer.

Served in a tumbler.
Dunno why, but there seems to be a bunch of Scottish ales showing up these days... Anyway, this stuff pours a lightly-murky sienna topped by a finger of glowing off-white foam. The nose comprises earthy greens, green tea, and toffee. The taste brings in more of the same, with the tea a bit more subservient to the greens than before, creating a nice, heather-like character reminiscent of a cup of Earl Grey on the moors. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a nice Scottish ale, one that balances the earth and malts pretty well, creating a generally enjoyable drinking experience.

Draft sample at Blackfinn in Mount Prospect.
Reddish tone with bright clarity, ample offwhite foam on the surface, depositing some spotty lacing around the edges. Good retention, the foam doesn't break until after the first few sips.
Toasted specialty grains, dry huskiness.
Similar flavors of toasty grains, husks and all, dry hop bitterness in the finish. Dry with no sweetness, body is light with ample carbonation. Seems a bit light for a Scotch Ale, but it's pretty drinkable nonetheless. Glad to finally try a beer from this new brewery.
