3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Deep amber, moderate frothy sandy head, nice lacing.   Sweet bready nose, slightly nutty and biscuity.   Not as sweet on the tongue, remains bready and nutty.   A bit toasted, subtle campfire.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Plain finish, soft toasted malt, nuttiness, with a bit of sweet breadiness.   No real peat, and the subtle campfire is gone by this time.   Lighter example of the style.   Decent, but needs to be a bit more complexity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Out of the bottle from Bales. Pours a tan color with a coarse head that settled quickly. Smells and tastes malty without much hop characteristics. The taste is well balanced and makes this a good beer.

yak. pour: copper with white head, lingers on top for drink duration. nose: sweet caramel malt..slightly smoked, thats it not much going there. taste: nice mouthfeel sweet amber malt, a little bitter then a touch of smoke, which is the lasting impression of taste. Overall, nice drink, not warming like a winter so appropriate for a "bonnie" day of fall, notable body, adding a subtle amount of smokiness which is pleasant and adds to the enjoyment. worth a tasting.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Poured deep, dark, reddish brown with an eggy head that faded to nothing quickly. Nose was malty with toasted grains. Big malt bomb of a beer (naturally). Mouthfeel had a filmy character it. Toasted grains, mild smoke and even a hint of peat. Hops were abasent in this one.
