3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
This one poured from the bottle with a dark amber color and a moderately lasting beige head. The caramel and bread were evident in the nose and the malt taste. It also had a slightly soy note on the aftertaste, but not bad though. The hops matched in an herbal way. I’d recommend it almost as a session brew, in that it’s smooth and has a rich taste for the style, but is still relatively low in ABV.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
