12 oz. bottle from ryanmcfly1985- thanks again, Ryan! Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a small khaki head that settles into a film and ring. Notes of toasted malts, leaves, earth, and brown sugar. Very simple and earthy. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Not a whole lot to say; just an easy, drinkable Scottish ale.
