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.

Poured on draft. Appearance is a murky amber with a creamy head of beige foam. Aroma is nutty, peaty, and earthy with some darker malt characteristics shining through. Taste is earthy and sweet without much in the way of bitterness. Not a bad scottish, just a tad uneventful.
