A- Pours a mixed mustard and red, and a one finger head. Quite nice lacing on the glass.
S - I can only say that it is very subdued from what I expected from this beer. Malts, biscuit, particularly Scottish shortcake, caramel, toasted bread, candy, spiciness.
T- Brown sugar and caramel, biscuit malts, dark bread, rye, wheat-grain plants, and a little hops on the back.
MF - A bit too thin I think, which makes it come off on the watery side, but not that bad overall.
O - Not a ground-breaking beer by any stretch of the imagination but from my first sip I thought 'This would be a fine session beer', not too heavy on the senses, yet still retains a comfortable distinctiveness.

Had on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy dark copper with really no head to speak of and absolutely no lacing at all. Pretty poor all-around.
Aroma is caramel and toffee along with a touch of dark fruit. Maybe a little grass from the hops.
The flavor closely follows the smell. Very malt heavy with toffee and a bit of roast. Dark fruits are prominent as well. Medium bitterness with some hay and grass. Sticky finish is a little more than I was expecting.
Overall, I'm not very impressed with this one. There are some ice flavors buried in there but it is a little muddy overall and a bit too sticky.
Serving type: on-tap
