Grain stored in a barn aroma,with touches of sweet carmelly malt,a bigger but still lightcarmel toffee malt taste,a little hop bitterness at the beginning ,but no real hop taste,somewhat standard for a Scottish Ale. Very tastey,yet light enough to enjoy several. Thanks Kingpin

Bottle. Hazy orange/copper, medium head, light-medium lace. Aroma is earthy hops and sweet malts. Taste was much more hop forward with earth, floral, citrus with an evenly balanced sweet caramel malt and candy. Very good, smooth and well balanced. Medium-light bady. Medium bitter finish.

Thanks to my buddy "DUKE", who lives in Denver. Redish amber color. Smell of hops, smoke, leather, light malt, wheat, carmel, hints of chocolate and some nuts. Taste of hops, sweet malt, toffe, caramel, leather, cigarette smoke, sugar, coco beans, nuts and a nice sweet balanced bitterness at the end. Nice and smooth! Great beer.

Not a lot of aroma, but this is a really good beer. A nice pleasant grainy malt character. Had a little too cold and is a bit too thin, but still a pretty decent beer. Available at the Ft. Collins airport!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, via PhillyBeer2112, I believe. Pours a clear dark copper colored body under a fizzy and foamy one finger white head that left nice lacing. Aroma is full of syrupy malt with a little toffee, and light notes of tobacco and alcohol. Flavor is all malt. Toffee, nuttiness, toasted malts up front fading to a dryish toasted grainy finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. Texture is just shy of syrupy and gets a little sticky on the finish. Overall, this was decent, but no aspect of it really stood out.
