Nice peat smoked flavor. It’s prominent at first; less so the more I drink. Pretty well balanced with some caramel/sweet malt flavor -- although a little more "English" malt character probably wouldn’t hurt.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft at the downtown brewery. Amber with a small head. Served on the cold side. Out of balance, the peat smoked malt dominates. There is a solid caramel/sweet malty note. Some fruity esters. I would like to see less peat malt and more yeast character. In the end, was not holding my interest.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a red/copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet metallic peat, very light. The flavor is very dominated by peated malt; dry, grainy, earthy, not really smoky as much as rich earthy metallic peat. Quite dry. Interesting, not much balance.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub downtown
Appearance: Slightly cloudy amber with a medium sized foamy off-white head and some lacing
Aroma: Light smokiness and floral
Taste: Peat malts, grainy, caramel with a smokey finish
Light body with just the right amount of smokiness to make it tasty. Nice.
