Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a medium brown color with orange highlights and a medium sized beige head that left decent lacing. The aroma was dry and toasty with a bit of tobacco. The flavor was dry, roasty and woody with hints of fruit and caramel underneath. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

on tap @ Weasel Boy / Zanesville OH --- Nearly clear mahogany brown, beige rim head, dots of lace. Taste is malt and toffee that grows sweeter as it moves to a carbonated swallow. Then, it sweeps easily to a finish with a hint of bittering. Has balance as a caramel malt kind of brew. Big flavor for 4.5% abv. Good lighter side brew.

Shot (506) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2014
On tap at Columbus Brewing. Dark brown with a thin head. Aroma of sweet malt and biscuit. Malty flavors with toasty, bready notes. Bone-dry finish with muted hop flavors. An interesting departure from typical malty sweet Scottish ales. Malty, yet dry and crisp. Medium to light mouthfeel. Good, but not great.

phaleslu (10017) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2014
Draft at Columbus Brewing Company. Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Notes of toffee, brown sugar, butterscotch, and leaves. Starts a bit on the cloyingly sweet sides but gets blander as it warms. Light-bodied, with a malty, clean mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Doesnt leave much of an impression.
