solid scotch ale, outside of their comfort zone, nothing spectacular but serviceable.

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.

On tap at PP Carlsbad. Pours a reddish borwn, offwhite head. Sweet malt, caramel, toffee, and light chocolate. Notes of fruit and earthiness. Decent scotch ale, Im just not a big fan of the style.

Cornfield (5473) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2007
Personal Milestone: California rating #200 (out of 3423)!!!
The body’s a fairly murky brown color and it sports a sudsy beige head. This aroma is rich and malty, sweet, and has hints of smoke. The flavor, too, is quite malty and has some caramel, a bit of pome, and a lightly smokey finish. Quaffable.
