i thought this was quite good, light as it is for the style. its a little lighter in color too, short of brown, more amber looking, with a tall just off white airy head on it, an attractive brew, but definitely not as big and rich as i like them, especially this time of year. cool malt complexion here, i was worried it might be short on flavor given the low abv and apparent lack of density, but that just isnt the case. a nice earthy and semisweet, with a toasted sort of flavor, remarkable hearty for how light it is. a little hint of smoke and dried fruit to the flavor, more depth than anticipated, thats for sure, a raisin note, some brown sugar, but a quicker finish than most of these have. i sort of like the concept of a session scottish ale, whether or not thats what they were shooting for with this one, i think it fills an interesting style niche, and is a well made product. a little more carbonation than it needs, and perhaps a touch thin after all, but i enjoyed this quite a lot. my first beer from shoreline.

22 ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Did not notice a bottled date.

Pours a dark garnet, somewhat opaque, with a one inch head and some spotty lacing. The smell is malt, caramel, smoke, figs, some cherries, some yeast. The taste is a little more malt forward than the nose, dates, some figs, yeast, caramel- especially in the aftertaste, light coffee, a hint of cherries. A light bitterness midway, a bit of a sweet note on the finish. Smooth, a good level of carbonation, a decent medium body.

Good flavor, enjoyable to drink, a solid example of the style.

P: Nice reddish brown clear with a healthy foamy beige 2 finger head. This beer leaves a lot of lacing all the way down.
A: Bread yeast, toffee, caramel.
T: Caramel, molasses toffee, sweetness of sloe plum, bread yeast.
M: Light medium body with a little bit if long lasting bitterness. Nicely carbonated.
O: A decent Scottish Ale. Happy it was offered at Inside the Cellar and quality as happy to have tried it.

I like a good Scottish Ale and this one held it's own.

Sweet & Rich aroma - a little heavy on the carbonation - creamy finish though!

Would definitely get it again.
