Poured this from a 22oz. bottle into a icy Pint glass. Color was a copper amber with a little head that didn't last long. The nose was sweet and toasty. I found almost no bitterness. Very balanced and drinkable, not as heavy or rich as other Scotch Ales I have tried. Overall a good drinkable ale, but nothing exceptional. I will buy this beer again.

A 12 oz. bottle poured to a pint glass.

A: Murky tan copper with abundant bubbles but almost no head after the pour. Within minutes, there is no head, none whatsoever.

S: Sweet herbal malts. A slight tangy smokiness. Brown sugar sweetness. Hints of alcohol (6.7% abv.).

T: Tastes like spiced oatmeal. Grains and sweet malt predominate. Very likable, malty flavors

M: Medium to light body but with a prickly carbonation and some spiciness. A little too light/weak IMO for a scotch ale.

D: Good enough to drink again. Yes. Worth seeking out. Maybe. Not the pick of the litter but not a bad beer at all...worth a try.

Pours a nice 1 1/2 finger headw ith good retention that stays for a while down the glass. Nice ruby/brown cloudy color.

Smell is of toffee and toasted malts. A little bit of apple and plum fruitiness lie underneath.

Toated malts with tofee are first noticed with a sort of sweet green apple undertone that is only noticeable when paying close attention. This is finished with a dry hop bitterness and a green apple sweetness aftertaste. I had a 3.5-4.0 on nose and taste, but I will take points on taste as the beer is slightly astringent from the alcohol with a little bit of dry tannins producing very mild off flavors.

The sweetness of the apple really sticks to the palate. The mouthfeel is a dry and I feel that the beer gets slightly cloying because of this.

I like this beer and I think it is well done. I think the apple sweetness may bother some, but I like it. I think it mixes well with the malts and provides for a sessionable beer.
