1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Wow, this was a hard one to finish. Not my style. A sour scotch ale just doesn’t seem like a good idea to me. Pours a hazy pink/amber/orange with medium creamy head that sticks around for a while. Aroma of alcohol, toasted malt, tart fruit, and caramel. Sourness does not lend itself well in the flavor and I was severely disappointed with this one.

Bottle pours a reddish amber with a slim head and sweet malty aroma as for the taste - sweet malty and hoppy with a mild bitterness to its finish.

This beer was dark and potent. Lots of sweet malts to balance the high alcohol. Caramel, dark chocolate, and dark fruits. An interesting beer. Heavy and probably best when the weather is a bit colder.

Pint in The Sanderling at Glasgow airport. A strange pale golden colour that came with a fairly large head (thought about sending it back).

Cloudy amber - brown beer. Semi dry palate. Strong malt with light toffee caramel streaks. A little fruit slips past the dominant malt in the mid. Finishes soft with mild alcoholic warmth.
