I have tasted my way around Scotland several times and this is the closest to good Scottish ale that I have found in the U.S. so far. I love the sweet full taste. I purchased it locally but when I went back for more it was no longer there. I need to see more of it. Hopefully that will be soon.

Pours a mahogany amber brown with a thin layer of frothy off-white foam.

Caramel, scotch malt, slight smokiness, and earthy hops.

Earthy hop bitterness, scotch, caramel, toffee, peat.

Medium-bodied, low-medium carbonation, slightly smoky, earthy, smooth.

Overall, a great surprise to find another solid scotch ale. As a fan of the style, it's a very difficult style to do well and Tyranena nailed it with this one.
