Golden colour. Big almond nose, rich malty. Pale malt flavour profile and a little smokey and dry. Papery bitterness. Interesting!

color is light to medium golden, head is thick and creamy. has some caramelly and heavy butter notes mixed with some really earthy hops. flavor is essentially the same...heavy on the butter.also some charred wood in the flavor notes. there might even be the slightest hint of some peaty notes in the nose.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice toffee and butter aroma, with grapfruit and some sweeter fruits. Hoppy, sourish flavor and with a rather mild finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a almost orange out of the bottle with a small white head. Aroma is very musty with some hops in there. Flavor is very citrusy. I can get some orange and apple smokyness. Leaves a real bitterness on the tounge. Finish is thin and watery.

Bottled: Golden coloured. White medium sized head. Lasting. Malt, hops and fruit in the aroma. Has a nice hoppy flaovur. Some malt fatness is present and the beer ends on a nice bitter tone. Quite like this.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(on bottle)A deep orange ale, with a sweet aroma of yeast and apple. The correct watery mouth for british brews and a light sour, fresh ending. Easy drinkable pale ale(at least thats what the label says)

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber with a white fleeting head. Straw/grass, herb, hop aroma. Watery texture and light bodied. Flavor was unremarkable. Some at the tasting were waxing poetically about his beer but I fail to see the attraction.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pours golden, small white dishwater like head, nice lacing, but with very little carbonation.   A very subtle aroma of flora and charred wood.   The charred wood comes out in strength once it hits your tongue.   Very light malt profile.   Finishes a bit thin, with lingering ashtray notes.   While not a bad beer, its not all that impressive either.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (Ossian Ale): Clear medium amber hue with lasting frothy white head and good lace. The aroma has notes of pine, apple, orange zest, pale malts, and earthy yeast esters. The taste has a surprisingly mild bitterness with a citric twang background. Some malt and flowery undertones. The finish has a sublime smoky nature and a hint of spice with the lungering smooth bitters. The feel is lively and crisp but much too thin. This beer is really a summer refresher with the lighter body and crisp piney nature. Sum is better than the parts.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light brown/gold little or no head, fine bubbles. Sweet pine, peach and slight citrus on the nose. Some roasted flavors, though light on palate, nice refreshing hop finish, also a nice nutty quality. Not bad at all.. though not really enough body..
