A- Very typical scotch ale color, brown/ruby red. Decent carbonation but head disappears quickly.

S- Caramel sweetness to the smell but a slight off-note of harshness. A little green maybe.

T- Caramel and vanilla but a harshness. Strong flavor to start but an aftertaste that isn't great.

M- Coats the mouth with the strong malt flavor but leaves a little alcohol and bitter feel.

I would maybe try this beer again in a month or two. I feel maybe this will clear some green beer feel. Overall an average to sub-par scotch but might improve.
