Pours a very cloudy amber with a head that faded quickly into a ring. Iím getting sweet malts, some smoke flavor in the nose. Very malty. Very heavy smelling. Flavor is Very malt forward with a hint of battering hops at the end. Kind of sweet. Thin mouthfeel. This is a decent beer with few flaws.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Smells like a pale ale with some caramel. The flavor is a bit bitter, but rotten tasting. Just a foul of a beer. Tastes like hastily made brewpub fare.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep copper with a medium head. Aroma is malty, toasted, and a bit of dark sugar. Medium to full body. Flavor has nice toasted malt, sweet, light caramel. Fits the bill for a winter ale but nothing more.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark copper with an off white head. Smells quite malty, sweet and grainy. Taste of semi sweet hops hitting first with the sweetness then bitterness. Malt dominates giving it a more regular beer type flavor and the warming feeling. Nothing to strong or complex but another great session brew by Longtrail.

Served at a new place, Max and Leoís, on the Newton rotary. Nice burnt umber color, toasty sugar aroma. It is semi-sweet with bitterness that escalates towards the finish. Medium body that feels heavier than it is.Thought this was more English than Scottish. Love that bear by the fire.
