Pours a ruby amber color in tulip glass. Off-white head dissipates pretty quickly. Minimal lacing on sides of glass.

Smell has an apple cider quality to it. Little malty smell comes through as this warms.

Taste is sweet malt up front. Some fruity notes are present. Mild bitterness for me.

Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied. Average carbonation.

Overall this was enjoyable. Thanks to my mother and father-in-law for this one.

Reviewed from notes.

Dark amber with a tan head, with decent retention and lacing. Smells and tastes like caramel malt and peat. A bit smoky, and has some hop bitterness.

Medium body with average carbonation, and not much aftertaste. A decent beer, which I wouldn't mind trying again.
