3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle, from the bottle. Thanks, Steve! Good malty character, with notes of peat, cereal, and hay. Sweet flavor, with a minimal bitterness. Light to medium body, grainy, lightly carbonated, and crisp and clean. This is a fun, malty, and approachable beer.

Sampled as GABF 2015. In the tasting glass pours amber with almost no foam. Nose of caramel malts. Medium body. Flavor is malts and some floral hops. Some bite in finish. The label is too much like Laughing Dog Brewery for me to be comfortable.

A basic Scottish ale. A little nutty which adds more to the mouthfeel and smoothness. It’s sweet and light, not rich at all.
