On tap at Ellyn’s Tap & Grill in Glen Ellyn, IL., dispensed to a shaker displaying a clear & bright amber color, with a decent layer of tan head foam creating a wavy band of lacing that reduced to spots & strands as the liquid diminished. The nose was slightly earthy and toasted, with some biscuity & nutty hints, and a bit of caramel sweetness. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste added hop bitterness that was slightly roasted and earthy, a hint of woodiness/peat, and touches of tannic tartness & dryness to the finish. Offered a little Scottish flair, but very representative of the style.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with white head. Toffee, caramel, toasted malt aromas. Toast, caramel, malty, toffee flavors. Not a style I typically like, but very enjoyable version of the style.

Pours a clear orange/amber with a respectable off white head. Aroma of caramel and grass. Taste is sweet caramel malt, buttery biscuits and bread dough. Smooth crisp and clean with just a touch of hops. Refreshing and quite good.

Onslow (1378) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2016
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Aroma of light caramel malts, some fruit and very light earthiness. Taste is sweet malt up front, earth and a sour fruity verging on vegetal taste. Transitions to a more sour unsweet fruitiness with some earth, hints of cardboard and nuts. Smooth palate, soft carbonation and somewhat oily.
