On tap at the brewpub.
Served in a pint glass.
Good looking red-amber body topped by a decent head.
This is a solid mainstream Scotch Ale that is at least on par with the typical version found in Scotland.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Brewery/Brewpub -- I thought this beer had the potential makings of a great Scotch. Although slightly light, I thought it needed more body.

Part of a flight at the taproom. Clear reddish brown pour. Nice balance of roast and sweetness with a slight hint of smoke. Not usually a Scotch ale kinda guy, but I dug this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark reddish brown. Aroma is roasted malts, tea, peat. Taste is malty, staying sweet and containing none of the expected dry, roasty bitterness the aroma led me to believe. Short finish & aftertaste.
