Bottle, purchased in Havre. Reddish copper, very lively beige head. Caramel and sour grains, not appealing to me at all. How in the hell did this piece of shit win any awards? Seriously? Oh God, I feel a nasty message from the owner coming my way again....

Pours a dark amber, with ample tan head. Aroma of malts. Very smooth and drinkable. Thumbs up, a very pleasant Scotch ale.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It pours a deep reddish brown with a finger’s worth of foam.
The nose is mild but I do get some caramel malt, grain, and a bit of fruit. And some smoke.
Overall, I get a mixed bag of sweet and bitter in the taste. The fruitiness is kind of weird but I like it. Slight smoke..more of it and that seems to turn me off the style so I’m glad it’s slight.
Hmm...I really have very few of the style that I have a liking for and this one gets not so good reviews. Oh well.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap: Pours a brownish copper color with a large, fluffy beige head. Mild aroma is mostly malts, some faint dirty florals, and a little grass. Taste is lager malt, grass, and lightly earthy. Just enough florals to keep it from being one-dimensional. Nothing to get excited about.
