3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Fest 2015 - Pours tannish / orange with a beige head. The aroma has dry toffee, nutty malt and caramel. It has a medium / light crisp body with semi-sharp carbonation. The taste starts with crackers, dry toffee, light peat and toast. The finish is dry and has exactly what you’d want from a Scottish ale. Really nice true version of the style.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on tap in a mini Willybecher glass at the 2015 Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Festival. It poured a deep reddish amber colour with white foam. Solid maltiness but not sticky sweet. Grainy, nutty, earthy. Subtle UK-style hop balance, very faint but pleasant. Light-medium body and carbonation. 100% true-to-style 80/-. One of my favourites from today’s fest.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Repeal. The last beer I had so taste buds were not ideal. Toast, caramel, proper malts, and some earth make a nice Scottish Ale. Not a favored style of mine but this is decent.

Light brown copper with big tan head. Aroma is lightly roasted malt and some brown sugar. Body is light, very light caramel sweetness. Slightly acidic hop flavor at the end. Like an apple pie without the apple pie spices.
