Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear bright copper brown with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like caramel, nutty, roasted malt, and sweet citrus hops. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like roasted malt, caramel, nutty, a hint of vinegar, and citrus hops.

12 oz. bottled March 2015. Pours clear chestnut brown with a lasting film of cream. Mild aromas of cherry cola, toasted nut and cocoa with a slight earthy note. Tastes of caramel cola, cocoa, and cherry. Light-medium body is a little too sweet even for the style.

Fun to have again...since we had a keg at our wedding many years ago. Decent simple Scottish. Amber colored. Caramel and roasted malt forward. A little sweet and thin, but drinkable.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Heavy malt body that doesn’t meet expectations. Can taste the roasted malts. Deep red color has no head or aroma to speak of. It’s simply boring.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber golden with a white ring around the top edge. Some light caramel and sorghum on the nose (literally on my nose--stuck it in the glass a little too far). Smooth, full texture. The caramel and sorghum noted in the aroma comes through in the flavor with a dimensional quality. A bit of horehound candy there toward the finish.
