I had the pleasure to drink this beer back in the days when there was a LOT of peated barley presence (and it was still called "Maul Hammer.") It still has some decent mouthfeel, and when it warms up, you get just the slightest reminder of that smoky peat. It has always been a smooth drinker, to the point of being quite dangerous in its 6.5% abv past, but I think it's been dumbed down to the point of near-fogettability. Still, it's better than most US attempts at a Scottish style.
Serving type: on-tap

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...
