Pours a ruby red into Sprecher pint glass. My label reads 5.5% ABV. Biscuity aroma with some floral notes. Taste is juicy with a balance of dark cherries, caramel, and toasted biscuit. Finishes with a long and soothing spiciness. Very nice Scottish bitter.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a shinny copper with golden hues and a creamy white head. Aroma is faint fruits and not much else. Flavor is nutty bittersweetness with some very slight woody and vanilla notes, with a short but gentle fruity/ bitter aftertaste. Medium to light palate, a touch watery but sessionable and just enough flavor to keep it interesting.
