Tap. Clear, carmel brown pour with a thin scattering of tan foam. Aroma is light sweet malt, toast, and peat. Taste is light and sweet malt with caramel, perhaps some light hops, and a nice roasted peat character into the finish. Balanced and easy drinking. Unassuming and well made.

A pretty pedestrian scotch ale. Muddled malts, it just doesn’t come together. There is a BA version that I would recommend.

i like scottish ales quite a bit, and this one is definitely serviceable, though it doesnt stand out the way say Great Divide’s does. but i could polish off a few of these no problem.
