3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A milder version of a Scotch ale. Itís true what the brewery says, this is a smooth drinking beer. Itís surprising coming from Victory that this beer doesnít have a higher ABV.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
an exceptionally mellow and smooth scotch.
lots of well roasted pure malt gave this a mild buttered toast taste.
little in the way of hops as they would only distract from the malt character.
hasa slight smoky element.
