COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Doff the cap of this complex Scottish Ale with 5.6% ALC/VOL, and in a wink you’ll be hearing Highland bagpipes as you sip this smoky, peaty, bonnie good brew. Aye. That’s the high road, that is.

12 oz. bottle, consumed on 12-14-14. Pours a moderately effervescent, clear, dull copper with a moderate amount of short-lasting, rose-hued beige head. Produces sporadic lacing. Looks pretty good, but I’ve seen many a similar-looking beer. Dry, lightly tangy, malty aroma features scents of chocolate and bran muffin. Malty flavor is mostly toffee sweet but does have some dryness in both the start and finish that I suspect comes more from peat smoke than from hops. That said, I wouldn’t call it smoky, and I certainly wouldn’t call it peaty in flavor. Long, dry aftertaste. Light to medium body. Somewhat lively and somewhat frothy in the palate. Ordinary palate effects. Pleasant flavors but not outstanding. Nice and pleasant overall. I feel like I’m being too hard on it when giving it a 3.2, but I don’t see any area that merits an increase in score.

Not bad but would be better with a touch less sweetness and a touch more peat. Maybe two or three touches.

GABF 2014. I’m not sure what I made me want to try this beer; maybe the description of smoke and peat. Light golden color; it could almost pass for a bitter. Dry, with an earthy finish.

HIGHB4LL (656) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2014
12 oz. bottle form Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger of light tan head, great lacing, copper color, clear, head lasts as a film. Aroma: light roast, earthy, peat, heavy caramel and molasses, light grassy hops. Palate: medium body, cloying sweet, light alcohol notes on palate, soft carbonation. Taste: sweet caramel that grows and goes into light roasted malt/peat taste, with a light grassy hops taste on the finish. Overall, enjoyable earthiness, and booziness is subdued for style, a bit too cloying sweet for me.
