Beautiful clear copper pour under a generous, creamy, off-white head.
Sweet nutty, malty aroma. Bit-O-Honey candy.
The flavor is lightly sweet with no real hop bitterness. Simple, safe, easy drinking. Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2012
22 oz. bottle: Pours a clear copperish amber with a thin off-white head. Malty aroma has hints of toffee and the sweet malty flavor has a caramel presence with a creamy texture and light body. reebtogi (6261) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2012
650ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that settles down to reveal a few spots of lacing. Aroma is light fruits and malts with some hints of pine and citrus. Taste is quite sweet for a scotch style ale with only mild pine and citrus bitterness and none of the peatiness that I have come to expect from a scotch ale. Also, lighter in body for the style. A decent tasting brew, but does not represent the style well. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2012
GABF. Caramel colored pour. Sweet aroma of toffee, a hint of creamed corn and whipping cream. Sweet flavor of toasted grains, caramel and a noticeably light hop flavor.

Pale amber-gold pour. Sweet toasted malt and a bit of crystal as well. Dry and well-attenuated though.

Clear copper with good, creamy, off-white head / Nose of spun sugar, malt, and faint citrus / Light to medium body, a touch watery, modestly sweet and sticky, with otherwise good balance and finish / Simple, weak, clean flavors of spun sugar, orange, and resin / Has promise. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Draft. Rich amber beer with a dark cream head. Light caramel aroma. Toasty malt and light caramel flavor. Medium bodied. Toasted malt and light caramel lingers with light backing hops. robforbes (2241) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2012
pours a clear amber with a very small white head that goes away qucikly and no lacing.
smell is faint, some caramel, some malt, and a tad bit of roastiness.
taste is thick, butterscotch, malt, caramel, earthy, and a few hops. ends a little bitter and a little dry.
overall not that impressive. dfinney23 (3268) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Pours clear copper with white head. Grain and malt, maybe a hint of smoke. Needs a bit more substance.
