On-tap at the brewery.

A - Pours a reddish/brown color, thin ring, wisps on top.

S - A nice mix of hops and burnt sugars. The hops are a little more pronounced then I'm use to for the style, but this is still quite enjoyable. Some citrus and caramel notes in there as well.

T - Again, the hops and malts are neck and neck. The sugary sweetness is there, but still subtle. Very enjoyable and easy to drink, which isn't what I normally find with this style.

M - Medium, good carbonation, sweet rich finish with a hoppy bite.

O - Really enjoyed this one. A nice easy-drinking Scotch Ale, if you've ever heard of that before. I like that it's not overly sweet, and the hops help balance this one nicely. Recommend.
