This beer pours an amber with good clarity. It is lacking a little bit as far as head goes. The little head there is is an off-white and settles to a small ring around the edge of my glass.
The aroma is bread-like with some caramel
Flavor- Nice maltiness, bread, caramel with nice crisp early addition hop presence leaving way for the malt to take over in the end.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium to moderate carbonation.
My first bottle of this had some leathery off-flavors but after a second sample I found this beer to be quite drinkable.

Having had this fantastic Scottish ale in bottle form, the tap version is just as good if not better. Pours a deep amber with light quickly dissipating head that leaves light white lacing. Smell of caramel, toffee, fresh biscuit, with a light peat smell. Taste is excellent with rich caramel malts and peat malt shinning through. Silky smooth mouthfeel, refreshing for a beer coming in at a higher ABV. Light toffee taste in the back with caramel malts and almost zero bittering hops. Excellent as always and one I would suggest to turn newbie beer lovers onto as well as the experienced beer nut. Cheers.
