4/5  rDev +9.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Caramel pour, with a good bit of light making its way through. Chunky head with 2 fingers of medium cream color. Decent retention and lace.

Darker notes in the nose than the other Fynes I've tried. Caramel and roast malt quality. Tends toward sweet.

Flavor has a bit of tea, lightly scorched caramel malt, and a hint of peat in the finish. Lighter flavors than I like in a Scotch ale, but not unappealing.

Feel matches the flavor, light and not overpowering in the least.

Overall, a very easy to drink Scotch ale.

500ml bottle. Accchhh....

This beer pours a clear, dark golden brass hue, with two fingers of rocky, chunky pale beige head, which leaves a decent tree-scape overhang of lace around the glass as it dissipates. It smells of crisp, somewhat toasty biscuity malt, some mild fruitiness, and earthy hops. The taste is nice, mildly roasted bready caramel malt, some understated oily nuttiness, and soft earthy hops. The carbonation is average, the body just on the low side of medium weight, and genuinely smooth. It finishes off-dry, the bready malt pleasantly playing off the zippy floral, earthy hops

While a bit weak overall for expectations, if not the style, this is still a decent offering - malty, well hopped, and quite agreeable for a low ABV offering - and the flavour indicating a session-worthy instance if there ever was one.

A: This beer pours copper with red highlights. The white head is rather small but really creamy. Nice lacings.

S: Rich fruit and sweet, sweet malt. Honey. Some noble hops. Buttery and nutty. Lots of blueberries as well as blackberries and raspberries.

T: Sweet light roasted malt balanced with bitter hops. Butter and nuts. Lots of fruits and berries, a bit fainter than in the smell, thougn.

M: Long-lasting dry bitter aftertaste. Body is medium and carbonation rich, but very smooth.

O: A well balanced beer with both sweetness and bitterness. Nice!

A pretty basic ale. Pours a darker gold color with a red tint and little to no head. Smell is very faint but you can get just a touch of fruit. The taste is exactly what you would expect from a UK ale. Best served warmer, the roast malt is what you notice about this beer. A great drink if you are just hangin' out with people, but if you are looking for something to dazzle your taste buds this is not it.
