Light brown pour with little head to speak of. Nose is almost pure malts, but not very big.
The flavour on this is very smooth and casual, almost purely sweet caramel malts and a bit of a nutty edge and a decently long finish. Reminds me in some ways of a less chewy doppelbock
Overall, this is an interesting and tasty take on the Scottish ale style. I would label this a good cross-over beer, and it would certainly qualify for a solid session beer if the ABV wasn't a skosh high. Very easy drinking in any case, and a must try for people who like beers that centre on hops rather than malts for an occasional change of pace.
