Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Cheers to Leighton. Hazy amber beer, little bubbly white head. Palate is light and soft and dry. Smooth and light creamy malt. Floral note. Smoke is pretty obvious but never gets acrid. Light dry finish. Pretty tasty and a little different.

Bottle at Bruce’s - London. Thanks mom for getting this one! Pours mostly clear, red-gold with a frothy off-white head. Nose has lots of peat, some smokey ham, hints of caramel. Light to medium sweet flavor with sturdy honey ham, light peat, modest caramel, some bread. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, more bread, peat, honey ham, subtle caramel. Very drinkable stuff. The peat isn’t overly potent. Nice.
