I'm a bit confused by this brew. The website calls it an old ale, I don't sense much Scottish quality about it and I'm leaning towards a mild American Pale Ale or an English Pale Ale. Either way there is a nice hoppy aroma mildly bitter. Golden copper color with a small head and lots of lacing. Mouthfeel is fine. Nice calm taste. Abundant maltiness with a sharp bitter hop quality. The aftertaste is kind of funky. Overall not bad but it didn't raise my eyebrow.

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.
