Delayed review until new brewery info was entered. On tap and shaker served at Lunar Brewing Co., Villa Park, IL., showing an amber/brown color, a modest amount of off white head foam that reduced fairly quickly to a ring & film, and wavy cling to the lacing. The aroma was mild, toasty malt, and light hints of peat, leather, and caramel. The flavor was similar, adding low, earthy hop bitterness, medium to light body, average carbonation, and a pleasantly dry finish. A little light on character, but a decently drinkable, lower shilling Scottish.
