on tap-pours a dissipating light tan head and amber color. Aroma is sweet caramel malt. Taste is smoky, sweet caramel malt, secondary flowery hops. Mild carbonation. Right on for style.

Tap at the source - Clear orange, thin creamy off white head. Nice nose that held soft notes of smoke, caramel, and faint dark fruit tones. Smoked malt flavor up front fades into more toasty dark fruit notes. Rounds out with just a kiss of sweetness. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, smoked finish. Nicely done and perfect to drink with a b-b-que meal...

Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a clear amber color, with very little head on it. It does leave some lacing down the glass. The aroma is decent enough, with mainly caramel malt to the nose. Hints of some peaty smokiness also. Mainly a medium-bodied caramel malt flavor, but finished with peaty taste on top. A hint of dryness in the finish also. Nice.

I've been really digging Scottish ales lately, so though the previous couple of samples I had here were mediocre, I had some hopes for this one. WRONG! It sucked, bigtime. Pale and thin looking for a SA (light amber? looks like a goddamn amber ale), light malt body, hints of smoke in the nose, basically no hops, no carbonation, no flavor. Very very weak.
