2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured a medium amber color with a tad bit of whitish head. Aroma is yeasty with a tad bit of mild earthy hops. Mouthfeel is very heavy. Flavor tastes literally like you are drinking a loaf of white bread. All yeast/dough. Not a fan.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
In our room at Thistle Hotel, Aberdeen, Scotland 2005, the evening before going home. Amber with a nice head and lace. The aroma has notes of pipe tobacco and caramel, and the flavour has notes of smoke, malt and fruit (melon). Practically no bitterness. The smoke disturbs the experience.

Not much of an aroma, slightly hoppy in flavor. Pretty color.... amber/reddish. Flavor isn’t bad, bubbly to the palate. Overall decent..
