A - Small brown head on a brown body with amber highlights.
S - Nice fresh maltyness with light piney notes.
T - Predominantly malty with nice refreshing sturdy bitterness.
M - Nice firm body on a light refreshing beer.
D - Although I dont quite think it goes with English muffins for breakfast, at 3.2% it light enough to drink at lunch without slowing you down for the rest of the day.

From the website "This is the lightest (i.e. lowest gravity and alcohol content) in the trilogy of classic Scottish-style ales that Baird Beer brews (the others being 60-Shilling and 80-Shilling). 40-Shilling weighs in at an amazingly low 8.7 degrees Plato and due to high mashing temperatures attenuates (apparent attenuation) only to 69%. This is a quintessential session beer whose light character is betrayed by a dark amber-brown color and a fairly heavy malt flavor that is bready and biscuity in character. Baird 40-Shilling Ale would make an excellent breakfast accompaniment to English muffins and strawberry jam!"
