Hazy dull amber color. Good head at first, settles to a skim after one minute. Toffee aromas. Complex taste, some caramel and buttery diacetyl and a sense of a hoppy close. Dense and somewhat slick mouthfeel, well rounded flavors. I didn't get a lot of alcohol sense, but seemed to match the "Scotch" category very well.

I'm taking this to be the "gold" Scotch ale. Strange. Gold in colour, yet peaty (i usually associate peatyness with a darker brew,). Quite sweet at times , with a lightly salty peaty, softly bitter finish. A bit sticky and bland. Whiskey-like malt.

Very robust with a strong, tingly hops finish. A good example of the style.
