12 oz. bottle, poured into pint glass - 8.2%

A-medium brown; light brown head, maybe 1 finger height

S - malty sweetness, no alcohol

T - malty, a little bready, a hint of raisin or currant perhaps? once swallowed, a slight astringency with light sweetness and alcohol. Clean.

M-SMOOTH as a baby's bottom. Medium low carb. Did I mention SMOOTH? Wow.

O- very well balanced. not terribly complex, an easy drinker. I am shocked that you don't taste the heat from the alcohol. A good effort by one of NC's newest brewworks.

Poured on-tap and served in a tulip, the beer is a crystal clear, caramel coloring, with a filmy, clingy, bright white head. Nose of roasted caramel, peat, thistle, toffee, and tangy cream. Very rich and sweet. Flavors are rich and sweet forward, heavy on caramel and toffee, with a creamy highlight. Sugary notes, too. Full bodied and slick, with a roasted sweet toffee and caramel aftertaste. Smooth, cloying, slightly slick finish. Good beer.

This is the seasonal, pumpkin spice version of Brueprint's Scottish ale, served on draught. The color is a rich, reddish-brown with a thick, milk-white head and significant lacing which did not dissipate. The smell features pumpkin, nutmeg, malt, and toffee. The first taste sensation is sweet caramel, followed by pumpkin, spice, and a dry, hoppy, somewhat bitter finish. This is a medium-bodied, highly carbonated ale. While you really don't taste the alcohol, you notice the 8.2 ABV by the time you finish the pint. Overall, this is a nice seasonal take on a solid Scottish Ale. It is well-crafted and enjoyable. I look forward to tasting other beers brewed by Brueprint Brewing Company.
