3.87/5  rDev +6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a head that forms impressively and leaves a fair amount of lacing behind

Smell: Toasted bread and treacle with fruity tones of raisin and strawberry

Taste: A rather sweet opening, with the treacle dominant; the raisin and strawberry tones develop, in the middle, and the finish is a refrain from the opening

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: A nice, easy-to-drink, malty beer; lacks some subtlety but is a well-brewed example of the style

Thanks, mikedR (from the other site), for the opportunity

Medium sized maybe a bit bigger off white to light tan head sort of just sits above a clear bright caramel colored beer with some bronze highlights added to a deep color.

Light caramel roasted and biscuit malt aroma with just a touch of some hops characteristics adding to it.

Warming lightly roasted caramel malt taste that has sort a of biscuit like quality.

Light dry aftertaste that keep a caramel malt taste lingering on with this medium bodied beer.

This is a pretty decent Scottish Ale.
