3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Any first impressions?
-A veil of foam dissipates into the peachy ochre.
-Caramel maltiness and underlying toastiness announce an all-malt affair.
-The same fruity caramel is found once tasted, this time emboldened by some vanilla.
-The lean maltiness and very low carbonation make a soothing mouthfeel.
What if you dig deeper?
-The sweet, relaxed finish appears to be hopless.
-This is ridiculously easy to drink, rendering water to uselessness.
-A simple and effective scottish ale (or sweet bitter, if you prefer) for those days when you don’t care about hops anymore.
On cask at The Phoenix Inn, Inverness.
