"eh. this was ok. it initialy had too much of that lemony astringency that some scotch ales can have in the nose and flavor. i’d have scored this lower, but it faded as the beer warmed. what was left was a slightly too light, but pleasant smokey, peatym fruity malt beer. ok, but subpar for the style."
