Dark but mild, this ale has the emphasis on malt flavors with hops in the background. Caramel accents the palate and finish is ever so slightly smokey.

Sampled at the brewpub on 2/27/2012. This Scottish ale pours a medium to dark amber color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is aroma is caramel, peaty and sweet. A medium bodied Scottish Ale. The malts are caramel and sweet, touch of peat, touch of smokiness. The hops are herbal and earthy. Fairly smooth tasting, touch of residual sweetness at the finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

A: The pour is a dark copper color with a somewhat short lived off-white head, settling down to a thin layer. S: The nose is a very nice blend of nutty toffee that, sweet caramel malt, and a hint of vanilla. Surprisingly aromatic and pleasant. T: This one starts of nicely sweet with some mild peat notes to balance that out. Again, sweet toffee and mildly nutty with a really nice vanilla character. Just a hint of bitterness on the finish. M: The body is medium with a smooth, creamy carbonation. D: This was actually very good. I always want to like Scottish ales, and this one allowed me to do so. I’d definitely recommend this beer.
