COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Scotch Ale starts with a beautiful off-white head above an intense amber body. A faint peaty aroma compliments a light caramel sweet entrance that gives way to a hint of smokiness and a dry finish. This is an ultra clean, malty beer that will get your bagpipes blazing!

Hoping for a big malt flavor and aroma, but the caramel was unbalanced and it fell flat. Not bad looking. Needs some help though.
