First had: on tap at Pike brewpub, Seattle, WA

With not many other choices on the menu that were appealing to me, I ordered up this Scotch ale. Poured a clear amber color with a small white head that didn't stick around too long; not much lacing to speak of. Mostly caramel maltiness in the nose. Nutty caramel in the taste, some sugar and peat, and a mild fruit flavor. Not too strong, but pretty smooth and drinkable.

Orangy copper, some fine sediment, a light tan cap with little retention but decent spotty lacing. The aroma is pretty solid in its power, toated and caramel malts, almonds and slight fruit. Lots of toasted caramel taste, a bit almond, interesting sweetness, slight spicy burn. I enjoyed how this tasted but not enough to get any more. Medium bodied, light fizz in the mouth. Smoothness that seems syrupy but is not. Decent middle but it fades to quickly on the finish. Chewy and mild spice meet the bitterness in a lingering after taste.
