Pours a brown color with a thick white foam head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, and some roast. Flavor has a stronger roast accent, with caramel and toffee. Pretty light-tasting beer. Though it’s not bad, it’s not very memorable, either.

Bottle into a glass. Deep ruby amber pour with a slight cream head. Aroma of sweet caramel and grass. Taste is distinctly bitter for the style. Sweet, cherry, roasted malt. Similar to Old Chub, but much more bitter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Ballast Point brewpub in Little Italy San Diego. Pours a dark red and makes a beige head. Aroma is of malted barley and raisin and plum. Tastes like caramel and malt and light hops. What a treat! There are several poor interpretations of scotch ale but the folks at BP totally get this right. Great example of the style.
