Golden amber/reddish pour with small off white head. Aroma was very faint malt and hops. Taste was faint malt and caramel and very faint hop finish. Very thin and muted taste but nice and crisp carbonation. Not bad but not memorable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Stone of Accord, among other places in Missoula. Pours a murky dark brown with red stripes at the edges. Creamy tan head. Big nose showing lots of notes of dark brown bread and oats. Creamy thick body with lively carb. Toasty brown bread mid palate. Mild finish. Appealing scotch that’s widely available and pleasant to drink, as well as being something of a point of local historical pride in some quarters.
