"kinda average for a scotch ale. good use of the sweet and peaty malts, but it was a touch light and the hops were a distraction. i was surprised that this beer mixed with a barrel aged IRS was sooooo good."

Tap at the brewpub on 3/23. Pours dark orange/amber with a slight beige head. Malty aroma. Med body. Flavor is rather heavy malt - possible touch of smoke? Or maybe a little earthy? There’s a little hop. Finishes on the non-dry side, but it drinks pretty well tho.
