3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beer pours orange with a medium sized white head.
The aroma is not hoppy nor malty... I assume that is the heather.
It is mild in the aroma.
The flavor is different... Not bad, just different. It is mellow and earthy.
The beer has a bit of a sour character.
FInish is not quick.
An ok beer.
12 oz. bottle gifted by a friend. A clear beer of deep amber golden hue. A light beige head of one finger. Aroma is of an amber with sweet maltiness and a hint of chocolate. The flavor is that distinct Scottish malt and some caramel. Floral and dry notes. Hops are not big but do have a bitter bite. Zesty with a bit of fruit and some spiciness in the finish. Not a great beer. Kyle77 (44) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 29, 2015

Pours almost a light copper with a short white head.
Toffee, grain aroma.

A very easygoing, little beer. DialSquare (5062) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2014

Draft sample light copper. Nose toffee malt and light adjunct smell. Taste sweet malt up front, mid palate slight lemony tart. Light bitter finish. Didn’t seem like a scotch ale to me. Not off putting just not a stand out.

Nice looking beer. Hazy amber pour. Thin head. Although good looking just not my particular brand of vodka. Malty taste but gentler after taste. Ok but just not my style. Got 5 more maybe it’ll grow on me. shrubber85 (11448) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Draft. Light barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet barley malt and light herbal flavor. Tasty, straight forward beer. Drjohnrock (805) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Sample from bottle at 2014 Price Hill Beer Fest, tasted on February 16, 2014. Fairly dark gold color, strong slightly boozy aroma, nice bittersweet flavor that’s refreshing but has backbone. This would indeed be a fine springtime beer. cfrancis (3473) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2013
Thanks to Ian for this. Pours a copper clear brown with a small white head. Aroma is caramel malt, bread and heather. Taste is nice caramel and bready malts coupled with light heather that gives it a springtime field feel. steelhead3686 (270) - Jacksonville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours a deep copper color with a thin white head. Very nice toasty, hay malt aroma. There is a light to medium bitterness that is countered by a medium to heavy sweetness. It has a light body with a fluffy texture and a sweet finish. This is a nice warm-weather beer that I wouldn’t mind having again, and I would even pay a reasonable price at a bar.
