On tap @ Beachwood BBQ.

Pours dark brown with a quickly dissipating tan head. Carbonation level may be low for some, but just fine for my personal taste. Very slight notes of carmel on the nose, but not much aroma. Seems to open up a bit, as it warms. Overall a good scotch ale that I will drink again.
