Reviewed from notes.

Dark amber with a tan head, with decent retention and lacing. Smells and tastes like caramel malt and peat. A bit smoky, and has some hop bitterness.

Medium body with average carbonation, and not much aftertaste. A decent beer, which I wouldn't mind trying again.

Almost an orange appearance in sunlight. Lacing was weak. Sweet aroma and sweet on the palate but not over the top. Terrific mouth feel...I was reluctant to swallow. Pleasant carbonation and exemplary taste. For a Scotch style ale it exceeded my expectations.

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

One of the few beers remaining from the beers I brought back to Ontario from Alberta.

A - Pours a hazy copper colour with an amber hue, finger of head with little retention and no lacing.

S - Bready oatmeal, cereal notes, caramel, toffee and bran flakes.

T - Pretty mild for a scotch ale, bready caramel and bran, touch of peat that lingers with a hint of espresso and some alcohol sweetness.

M - No complaints here, nice carbonation level that goes down smooth and leaves with a touch of dryness.

O - A tasty scotch ale, but a little too mild for my liking. I like my scotch ales to possess more on the peat flavours, so don't look to this one if you're looking for a bold scotch ale. This might be a good choice to ease someone into the style.
