Big eggshell head falls slowly into this clear and deep mohagany beer without any lacing. Floral hops dominate the nose with sugary light malts and slight alcohol.
Taste is earthy hops into big maple syrupy dark caramel malt profile. As the malts slide out slowly the alcohol comes out a bit more, chased by an artificial pine-smoke that we get just a wisp of in the finish.
Mouthfeel is on the light side of full-bodied and has some almost cordial-like qualities. This is a very drinkable, lighter approach to scotch ale. Makes me feel like a lumber-jack.

Served a deep amber color with a thick tan head that faded slowly to nice lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, some malt and bit of caramel sweetness. Seems to be just a hint of smoke hidden in the background. Taste follows the aroma with a mixture of the dark fruit and caramel sweetness. Has a nice mild bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, smooth texture and nicely balanced. Easy drinker. Very nice offering for the style. having this in an Irish pub adds a bit to the character.
Serving type: on-tap
