A- Pours a clear dark amber color with a thin cream colored head. Head becomes a thin layer of bubbles and leaves a touch of layered lacing here.

S- Fairly light smelling a bit bready, toffee, and touch of dark fruits.

T- Follows the nose pretty well. A good amount of sweetness here. A touch of toffee, light bitterness and bready.

M- Lighter side of medium in body and a good amount of carbonation.

O- Pretty easy to drink and glad I got to try this one.

Served on tap into a 25 oz. mug at The Winking Lizard.

A-Poured a brownish red color with one finger of soapy head that left some chunky lace

S- Not much, light toffee and butterscotch

T- Toffee and butterscotch are the dominant flavors. Some coriander. Overall a nice sweet malty flavor.

M- Very smooth, high prickly carbonation, very drinkable

O- A very drinkable Scottish Ale. Tastes pretty typical for a Scottish Ale and is pretty flavorful.
