Notes: A quirky collection of caramel malts with a touch of roast will swerve what ya heard about Scottish Ales! Our local farmers – and their animals - know better than anyone about the beauty of this amber beer, from grain to glass!

3.6/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz can from Asheville.
A fine looking copper colored body topped by a beige head that has less retention than it should and leaves little lacing.
Aroma: toffee notes from malts, of course, but also more hops than expected for style.
Flavor: more subtle hops; very slightly sweet. Particularly nice finish and aftertaste.
Feel: very smooth, medium-full body with light carbonation.

This is a crystal clear, slightly reddish brown beer with an off white head that leaves quickly but clings to the edges and leaves a few ribbons of lacing behind. The aroma is malt. It has a little nuttiness and a bit of cocoa but it is pretty much malt. The taste is also malt. Also nutty and sweet with a mild tanginess like a brown ale but it reminds me of tasting a bag of malt extract which I like. This beer is what the name says and it is good.

A clear, amber colored ale with faint nutty roast malt aromas. It's malty and clean with a strong caramel finish. It reminded me of a much sweeter Alaskan Amber ale which I happen to like.
