Clear dark amber to light brown colored ale with a medium sized tan colored head.

Smells malty with a burned sugar scent and faint smoke. Caramel scent with a faint flowery hop scent. Best as I can ID the flower it is Honeysuckle.

Starts out on the sweet side with lots of malt. Caramel and some burnt sugar taste. Faint smoke but there is more burnt sugar flavor. Toffee and that is about it, hits all the bases.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall a tasty mild Scottish ale that is a little on the sweet side.

Shared by someone at Francois cellar cleaning party.

Decent fizzy head, hazy reddish color.

Nose sweet candy malts, very toasted reddish malt, little bready caramel like,, hint of candied fruit,

Taste sweet candy but drier, little candied fruit again, watery grainy malt, chewy malt almost nougat like, little butterscotch candy, not super sweet but little tingly booze. Finish bit more booze, sweet candy malt, little flat and thin, little earthy hop, mild soapy note.

Mouth med to heavier bod, little syrupy but thin, lighter carb.
