This is one of the BEST ales I've tasted in years! It was smooth, rich tasting with a lingering sweetness which made me want more. It is a perfect blend in my opinion. Although 6.8%, it has no bite! For me it went very well with a nice dinner meal or as a stand-alone ale. No true ale drinker will be disappointed with Railbender' Ale. I love it!

A-
One finger head that fades fast into a light ring on the edge
Light brown / copper in color with a decent, constint stream of carbonation bubbles.

S;
Roasted Malts right away with nutty and toffee not far behind. Roasted smell lingers in my nose as I go to take my first sip

T;
Almost spot on to the smell just more of it. The roasted smell makes no attempt to blend in. The nutty that I got in the smell trails behind and starts to blend in more towards the back of my palate in which it meets up with a hint of wood. No alchol and really no lacing on the glass...none that sticks around long anyway.

M;
nicely heavy but still smooth making it easy to drink...on a dangerous level.

O;
I find this to be a fantastic ale. Has made me decide to seek out more scotch ales. I love the complexity while still having a high drink ability.
