Bottle. Pours a reddish amber color with a small off white head. Aroma of wood, nuts and caramel. Taste is malty, with hops and a woody character being right up front. Has a bit of a hop bitternes as well as some malt undertones. Ends with a dry acidic finish.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I have to say this is a terrific beer!!! Great flavors, mix hoppy citrusy, amber smoothness and nice bitter finish under the layers of flavors. This is a must for anyone who hasn’t had this style or tried this breweries products. Its great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. This looked pretty darn good when I poured it. Disappointing beer though. Light caramel malt and toffee flavors as well as some hops lurking around, but this was thin and somewhat metallic tasting. Thanks for the bottle, Dad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caramel and burned toast on the nose. Deep amber color. Sweet, with a not terribly pleasant smokiness, and not a lot of balance. Body is decent, finish is abrupt. There are better Scotch Ales out there.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice deep clear amber pour with a finger of off-white head that quickly dissipated and left only light lacing.
This is a nice session beer with its common ABV, nice fresh-baked bread aroma, and simple flavor of yeasty bread, slight hoppy bitterness, and touch of sweetness to balance it out.
Unfortunately, being a nice session beer doesn’t make it a great beer. The thin, watery consistency and rather bland finish limit it to a nice easy-drinking brew.

SS. Pours a opaque reddish color with a white head. Aroma is mostly caramel and citrus. Hints of citrus fruits, malt, little hop, some floral notes. Finishes with a medium bodied malty citrus tang on the tongue.
