2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is my first scotch ale. It was a little bold for my taste at this time. I think it was probably right on the money for how its advertised. Just beyond me at this point. Smells and looks great in glass definitely a smoky malt flavor up front with a little hops bitterness in the finish. You know your drinking something with alcohol.
