Wee Heavy? You HAVE to be kidding me. I've had 60s and under more malty than this. Aroma is slightly metallic, some caramel malt. Nice presentation with almost an amber color, great clarity and pillow head. Taste even more metallic: I suspect they tried to mimic the brew waters of Edinburgh maybe? No hops, as expected except a slight bitter. Body weak for style: hardly a 60 mouthfeel wise.

As big a question would be, what the hell makes this a "winter?" On tap as a regular might be "OK," but in a season with spiced ales, barleywines, pumpkin beers etc taint anything "winter" about it.

Yazoo usually does better brews than this, IMO. Go for the always innovative, and varying, Hop Project, for example.

12oz bottle from six pack poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Amber with a nice, lingering head.

Smell - Heavy on the malt with an earthy sweetness.

Taste - Malt, caramel, a little chocolate and toffee with some earthy notes on the finish.

Mouthfeel - Crisp and light mouthfeel.

Overall - Scotch Ales are not my favorite style, but Yazoo continues to impress me with their seasonal brews. Definitely a nice addition to the Yazoo Pleasure Chest.

Pours a dark malty brown color, like your typical scotch ale. Although this isn't a very strong scotch ale, very moderate scotch taste. Perfect for a cold, cloudy winter/fall day. Bought a six pack on a dreary rainy sunday and it was the perfect brew to go with this kind of weather.
