Richish malty nose. Decent magnolia head. Deep brown hazy colour with some orange sparkle. Burnt caramel and a medium body with a sort of a red ale twist. Some sharp acidity and a light sour edge. Head thins over time but doesn’t disappear leaving some long wispy lacing. A bit stylistically confused by still quite decent.

bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear dark amber with a frothy beige head that stays at 1", broken curtain of lace. Taste is malt that includes a light sprinkle of spice, turning slightly bitter on the swallow, then adding toffee for a somewhat sweet finish. An interesting, light Scottish brew, lots to appreciate at only 4.2%. I’d have it again.

Bottle. Light peat aroma. Color is dark, but with light head, which doesn’t last. Taste is enjoyable, fresh, smoky with roasted malt notes. A very good embassador of scottish ale.
