A very nice Scotch Ale that is offered on a rotating basis at Barley's. Mine was a great amber color but lacked the type of head that would make it outstanding. Perhaps the temperature was wrong (didn't seem like it was) but the white head did not impress and only minimal lace showed up on the front of the glass. On the plus side, the nose and taste are first class. Of course, both tended heavily to the malt side and a bit of syrupy sweetness shows up. Still, this is a very mild, smooth, enjoyable ale that impresses with its surprisingly crisp finishing notes. Well done.

Okay, this beer is one they don't offer all the time, but rotate it more than some of their other ones. It is a beautiful amber read color. Not much of a head to it. Wonderful body to it. Slightly sweet, but can't place the flavor. A great tasting beer. Some followers of this style may find it too sweet, but I consider it one of their better beers.
