look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12oz bottle, no date, served in a Shaker pint glass.

Appearance: Bright clear copper. Little to no head except for a very thin ring at the edge. Some strands of lacing.

Smell: Not a lot. Some caramel malt and very little else.

Taste: What it lacks in aroma it makes up for in taste. Deep toasted malt and caramel sweetness. Solid malt backbone. Some mild bitter finishes mixing in with toffee and English bitter / mild citrus hop finish. Not amazing or wow in flavor, but compared to the lackluster aroma, definitely full flavor.

Mouthfeel: Definitely full bodied, not watery, but otherwise nothing special. A hint of some stickiness on the teeth.

Overall / Drinkability: Not an amazing scotch ale/wee heavy, just ok. Does go well with food though (beef burger sliders and deviled eggs in this case). While not very remarkable, this does not mean it's bland, just that I've had better examples of the style. Of final note, it's actually quite drinkable - a very good beer to drink in quantity and wash down food with as a complement. Just enough flavor to complement and be enjoyable, not too much to overwhelm or clash with a meal. So I'll give it higher marks on drinkability than on being a good scotch ale.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Pours two fingers on a hazy dark straw colored body.
The aroma is fruity: apricot, apple and pear. A touch too ripe though.
The taste is ripe apricot, bitter grapefruit, with a sweet finish. Unbalanced.
The texture is heavy, a little sticky with moderate carbonation.
This one never gets it all together at the same time. Individual elements were okay, but...
