Bland bland bland. Not bad. But very bland. Malt profile is meh. Not great not terrible. Could really use some more of whatever malts they use. It's sessionable which the can states is their goal but man I can see my feet through a full glass from the top down. Not the best scotch but not terrible.

Deep mahogany and brown colored body; the head starts thick, rich and creamy, then dwindles to a thin yet persistent state; nice rings of lacing on the glass. Nuts and toffee aroma; faint charred sugars. Brown sugar and caramel flavors with a decent bitterness throughout; tree nuts. Medium light body; slightly sugary yet dry finish.

Sure, not a 'wee heavy', so don't expect the big body and flavors associated with a Scotch ale, but for a Scottish, 'tis quite respectable.

Appearance- orange brown, light brown 2 finger head that's got a good velvet consistency

Smell- toasted and toffees are first to note, followed by a little dark fruit and brightness from the hops

Taste- a little tart on the front, toasted grains and malt sweetness slowly come back but the finish is also a bit astringent. Perhaps I ate something strange but the flavors seem a bit skunked, not noticing the hops.

Mouthfeel- medium body, fast fade in flavor

Overall- Quite surprised at the sub-standard taste this left me with. Not sure if I was hit with a bad batch but it left me without any of the standard rich notes of a Scottish.
