A decent brew, but nothing lifted my kilt. Just an avg. drinkable beer.

Pours a deep copper color with an alcohol soaked malt aroma. Taste is mildly sweet, minor caramel taste. I didn’t taste the smokiness, but the beers sweetness made up for it.

Pint at the Phoenix airport. Not being a fan of Irish reds, I like this because it has a non traditional malt base. More like toffee. Very gentle fruit. It is fairly rich in the feel. A bit of an odd sweetness that combines spiciness.

On tap at Watermans Beer Market 160515. Not bad but a little bit thin for me. Toffee and vanilla flavours with a smooth mouthfeel.

12oz bottle/draft. Had this many times while I was in Arizona. Was told it was one of the staples of the craft movement down there. Amber color. Sweet malty taste, caramel. Decent.

Again do not see the scores reflecting that this brew is a great Scottish ale. Amber to garnet, big head and carbonation brought out wonderful malts and dark fruits. Taste is just like smell with added peat to it and some anise. Excellent.

Draught. Pours a somewhat hazy brown color with a moderate off-white head. Nose was definitely malt forward, and has some caramel and hints of toffee for me. Taste was slightly sweet, but had a slight crispness to it that wasn’t bad. Largely forgettable, though.

12 oz bottle pours amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is very sweet caramel. Taste is malty and sweet.

Huhzubendah (2945) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Amber body with a thin beige collar. Sweet, fruity aroma. Caramel malt with fruity esters. Thin body with low carbonation. Mild hop bitterness in the back. A small sample was plenty.

Odorless and brown in appearance. Overall an average scotch ale. Nice malt and caramel cover. Had it on tap in Phoenix.
