Thanks to Wade for picking this up for me in Wisconsin. Poured into my sam adams boston lager glass, the appearance of this beer is a brilliantly clear reddish brown with a nice creamy, tan, finger and a half head. Aroma is toffee and caramel up front with some slightly toasted, bready, biscuity, notes.
First thing i thought when i tasted this beer is that this is a solid, approachable, and fine example of a scotch ale. Initial caramel malt and slight honey sweetness, slightly peaty, with a nutty finish. As it warms the peat makes a stronger encore putting the scotch in this scotch ale. Hops are pretty well subdued but the earthiness of the bittering British hop varieties used in this beer is a little more than i like for this style but it could be the peat. Alcohol is slightly more detectable towards the end of the glass but by no means offensive.
Body is medium, almost medium-heavy. Carbonation is just about spot on in conjunction with the body. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer and wish i lived closer to Wisconsin so i could have access to it whenever i please.
