Style: Scottish Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is our firstborn brew, whose accidental discovery started our story in 2003. Its originality also lies in its singular taste – notes of biscuity malt and vanilla swirling within a creamy, mellow character.

A pioneering beer, its flavour finds favour with brewing juries, blind tasting panels and barflies alike.

My favourite beer of all time. Always have some in the fridge. Love most flavours. Not a fan of their IPA, and the lager is just ok. The Original, and most variants of it, are fantastic.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear copper pour. 2 fingers of foamy white head. Solid ring of lacing.

S: Malty... biscuits and vanilla. Smells sweet and grainy.

T/F: Follows the nose. Biscuity malts... sweet toasted grains. Vanilla and oak... fairly 1-dimensional. Light hopping for bitterness only. Light bodied... well carbonated.

O: A mellow vanilla tinted oak aged beer. Light and drinkable. Nothing exciting and pretty simple but not bad. Easy on the palate.

Pours a clear amber with soft foam.

Smell is sweet with notes of golden syrup and vanilla.

Taste is sweet and malty with notes of oak and vanilla. Low bitterness and a bit simple.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a decent beer but a bit too sweet and one dimensional.

oak is a little too prominent and vanilla fake, otherwise interesting and tasty beer....on second thought as this warmed up, the oak prominence faded/blended a bit better, changed the taste/overall scoring
