Pint can shared poured a light clear brown color with tan head. No lacing to speak of, the aroma is caramel malts with hints of chocolate malts slightly sweet malts. The flavor brings more of the same with the caramel and chocolate malts being predominate. Slightly sweet malts mild to medium body easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can, straight from the can. If this beer was green I’d have no idea. I assume its normal appearance so I gave it a 3 for that. Aroma is caramel malts, sugar/sweet with a hint of chocolate. Quite nice actually. Thats a 7. Beer is sweet, malty, no hops. Caramel/chocolate undertones. Pretty nice, smooth and easy drinker. Nothing spectacular. Probably a 6.5. I gave it a 6. Palate? I don’t have a fucking palate. Its easy to drink. 3. No idea how this is rated so poorly. Its not great but its certain pretty good, especially for the style. 3.4-3.6

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A-pours a clear ruby red color with orange edges, a white head with little retention and no lace.
S-the nose is light, toasted bread, a touch of grain, sweet caramel, herbal hops in the back.
T-a toasted breadiness right up front, slightly grainy with notes of toffee in the middle. some sweet dark fruits blend in at the back with notes of tropical fruity hops to finish off.
M-very light body but smooth on the palate, good carbonation to hold the feel throughout and a clean soft finish.
D-easy drinking and tasty, nothing huge but a good balance and flavor profile.

Can: brown with a tan head. This is an awful example of a Scottish ale. This is crap and tastes like a dark lager essentially. Meh.

From the can, dark amber/copper pour, aroma is minor peat with lots of malts, taste is very similar with a little maple. Good, but not great.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 ounce can. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear copper/brown color with a half inch off-white head that went away quickly. There’s a small amount of lacing left behind on the glass. The brew smells like toffee, nuts, and toasted malt. It tastes like toffee, nuts, peat, and caramel/toasted malt. Mouthfeel/body is low/medium, it’s smooth and has moderate carbonation. It is pretty easy to drink. At $11.49 a 4-pack I wouldn’t buy it again at that price, but I do think it’s a brew that’s worth trying.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint can. Chocolate, toffee, slight smoke, tannins, toast. A quick nip of hops on the front end, and a multi-layered malt experience follows, tumbling in waves over the palate. About a two out of five on the sweetness scale, and as it seems like there are a lot of sweet beers out there this year, I wouldn’t say this one is overly sweet. Enjoyed it very much.
