A very pleasant drinking ale, with a fairly "generic" flavour, lacking the complex malt profile of a true scotch ale. The aroma vaguely malty, with something like a brett character (hard to tell after all the french cheese I’ve been eating). The flavour is nicely malty with a lingering bitterness (slight harshness) in the aftertaste. Combined with a medium body, this is very easy to drink, but I wouldn’t rave about it.

Aroma of malt, bread, caramel, toffee, brown sugar. Flavour is medium sweet with a light bittersweet finish. Drinkable Scotch Ale, but too toffee sweetish for my taste, a bit dull.

Is dit bier of cola met schuimkraag, ziet er eender uit. Hoop caramouten en pilsmout, komt droog over. Smaken zijn zacht, glad redelijk aan de zoete kant met overheersende carameltinen, typisch scotch ale dus. Zacht, glad iets romig, ach 't is niet al te vervelend, denk wel dat het bij deze blijft ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
