2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a medium brown color with orange highlights and a medium sized beige head that left decent lacing. The aroma was dry and toasty with a bit of tobacco. The flavor was dry, roasty and woody with hints of fruit and caramel underneath. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap @ Weasel Boy / Zanesville OH --- Nearly clear mahogany brown, beige rim head, dots of lace. Taste is malt and toffee that grows sweeter as it moves to a carbonated swallow. Then, it sweeps easily to a finish with a hint of bittering. Has balance as a caramel malt kind of brew. Big flavor for 4.5% abv. Good lighter side brew.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Columbus Brewing. Dark brown with a thin head. Aroma of sweet malt and biscuit. Malty flavors with toasty, bready notes. Bone-dry finish with muted hop flavors. An interesting departure from typical malty sweet Scottish ales. Malty, yet dry and crisp. Medium to light mouthfeel. Good, but not great.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Columbus Brewing Company. Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Notes of toffee, brown sugar, butterscotch, and leaves. Starts a bit on the cloyingly sweet sides but gets blander as it warms. Light-bodied, with a malty, clean mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Doesn’t leave much of an impression.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the CBC Restaurant. Pint glass. Pours a deep brown with a moderate white head that lasted and mildly laced. Aroma of nuts, earth, peat, roasted malts, and leather were present. Slight booze smell as well which was odd for a 4.5%. Taste was similar with the heavy malts. Didn’t seem terribly balanced. Kind of off for me. Medium body, medium carb. Finish was kind of messy.
