Sweet malt with shiny of spice(?). Pours clear copper with a thick foamy off white head. Thin bodied. Earthy. A little edge on the finish. I'd kind of expect something called a "flagship" to have some kind of distinction. This is okay and everything but just that.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Easy drinking scottish ale. Caramel malt aroma with a tinge of hops. Coppery color with a tan foamy head. Average-weight palate with a certain smoothness. Calming flavors of strong malts up front but not too sweet. Slight hops bitterness to balance. Easy to drink more than one.

"Classic scottish style ale. Copper color. Sweet leaning with some dark fruits, toffee and a hint of peat in the nose. Flavor much the same. Sessionable yet complex."

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from the Rugby tap. Aroma of toffee and caramel. Taste is quite heavy, more toffee and caramel coming through. Goes down smoothly. A bit basic, but still decent.

Ah, thank you, Arianna.
This was poured into a thistle for review, but often had a couple in a pint glass.
The appearance was a semi-dark red color with a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within a minute.
The smell had a nice semi-sweet smoky meatiness to it.
The taste was basically the same-with a decent sweet aftertaste to it.
On the palate, this sat right at a medium on the body.
Overall, good Scotch ale I could have again.

A crisp, refreshing, good hot day beer. A little bit of malt to give it the Scottish Ale flavor.
