3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This has a warm place in my heart because it was one of my first "favorites." I like this more than fat tire, just because it’s got more to it. It pours brownish-amber with a so-so head. Malt in the aroma with some slight hop presence. The taste is balanced as well. Rich for an amber but balanced by some decent bittering hops. Finish is good, mouthfeel quite nice. Not a particularly amazing beer but solid and nice.

A very dry start . Almost citrus in quality, and quite crisp. Fairly hoppy, not the best scottish ale, but it is still good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap: pours amber color. Malty taste with a hop compliment. Nothing too rememberful (actual word) but nice beer. I may have to re-rate this eventually.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It’s a bit thin, but it does have some malt flavor. Aroma is somewhat underwhelming but some good malt character does shine through. Overall, the thin finish is the most disappointing part... but hey, it’s beer!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint glass pour at Sweeney’s. Copper color with steady head. Aroma filled with malt and taste follows suit. Some hops present. A very sessionable ale. Easy to drink with a positive finish. Odell does better but a great fall back.
