Pours brown in color. No head retention. Aroma of caramel malts. The flavor profile is well balanced between the sweetness of the malt and a hop characteristic. It's a good tasting, easy drinking beer without a ton of unnecessary bells and whistles.

Looked a little flat with a nearly nonexistent head but the body ended up holding up pretty well from this brownish, ruby beer. Nose carried little other than a slightly vinous quality tempered by sweetness, which was the case exactly with the taste. Vinous comes off much like a cabernet actually. Not a bad take at all on the style.

Extremely thin, no nose, and little character in general. Just a very thin and weak beer. Not a fan.

Unfortunately the restaurant ran out of Anastasia, so I settled for this Scottish. Underwhelming - taste is reminiscent of Newcastle.

I enjoyed this offering. The day I visited they also had a Bourbon Aged Plaid Ferret Scottish Ale which was far better, deserving a rating easily into the >4.0 range. Beer advocate has yet to add this one to the list of beers to review, but if your there and they have it on tap, try it!!
