Average scotch ale. Carmel and slight nut taste. Dry. Not a fan. Had this on draft at Pyramid Brewery by Safeco field.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft. Off aroma like the lingering smell from a lit match. Orange-y yellow in the glass with no head. Heavy smoke and very thin malt aroma. Bigger malty taste at first gives way to a disagreeable ash flavour. Long, painful aftertaste. *NOTE: Not the Sacramento batch, this was from a small batch being tested at the Seattle brewery. I’d call it a failed experiment.

Tap at the Sacramento venue. Pours slightly ruddy amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma is malty. Med body; creamy carb. Flavor seems vinous, and rough roast malt. Not all that sweet, and there’s a touch of floral/fruit hop bitter, but it’s on the sweet side. Interesting.
