12oz poured into a pint. Smells of confused citurs and honey. No withstanding head. Taste is flat, uneventful, and low brow. Color is a murky amber and red. There is a faint sweetness that I hoped would linger more but subsides fast as the mild carbination follows through. Did not leave me too jolly after the experience.

Dark reddish amber color with a large head that dissipates quickly and cleanly. The aroma is very piney. Malty taste ends with a grainy finish. Feels like a very sanitized malty and creamy ale.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2011
This beer is a dark brown color with a hint of red around the edges. Medium light tan head that dissipates steadily, and partial rings of lacing. Aroma of caramel malt and brown sugar, with a touch of hops. Medium body with a sweet malty presence augmented by caramel and graham cracker flavors, plus some mild hops in the background. The finish is peaty malt with a short sweet aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2012 Brown color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, light roast, and burnt toffee. Taste of caramel, nuts, toffee malts, and a semi sweet finish. So fuckin drinkable.

I really enjoyed a bottle after a few hours in the heat...very refreshing and not as heavy as I was expecting for a scottish ale. Slightly sweet but the malt and hops were well balanced. I followed it up with a higher rated scottish ale (Bell’s Christmas) but liked this one more.
