Not sure how to exactly describe the flavor that resides in this one other than "peaty". It has a nice malty flavor with a good body and light, orangish coloration. Bitterness is restrained and flavor is unique and delicious.

Draught. Had this at the brewery. I was not very impressed. I do like it better on nitro keg than on regular draught.

Had a draught can. The aroma is malty and nutty. Pours an amber color with thick creamy head. The taste is sweet up front but finishes kind of dry with some slight bitterness. Light bodied and creamy. Just kind of a so so beer.

OwainTurner (294) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2013
#1 - A dull golden colour, with a thick Guinness like head. Tastes rather bland, rather sweet and slightly acidic aftertaste. I wouldn’t drink this again. *** After reading other reviews I feel I should give this one another go! I have to say the pub I went to was dreadful!! ...

Beerman6686 (4169) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2013
This poured a semi murky lighter brown color with a white head. Aroma was of light brown sugar, peated malt, and caramel. Flavor was similar, somewhat watery and bland but a perfect example of the style.

madvike (2658) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle - Clear dark amber pour with a thin tan head. Nose is caramelly sweet and bready. Waves of sweet bready malt. Not much in the way of hops and some skunkiness. Taste is bitter maltiness, a bit of sharp booziness, and a touch of grassy hops. Finishes with sweet malt. Pretty sharp. Slick and thin bodied.
