What the brewer says

“Brewed in the tra­di­tion of a Euro­pean-style pale ale, the Scotch malt foun­da­tion lays the ground­work for its unique fla­vor and char­ac­ter. A heavy dry hop­ping lends aroma and fla­vor but keeps the bit­ter­ness fac­tor low.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Not a stan­dard hops pro­file for the style: the aroma is woody, minty, spicy (cin­na­mon) with some pas­sion fruit and rose petal.” Fla­vor: “Very light grain bill with minty, woody, fruity, spicy hops with hints of cin­na­mon. Some fusel al­co­hol am­pli­fies the thin body. Bit­ter­ness is ap­pro­pri­ate, but the thin body doesn’t work well with the bit­ter fin­ish.” Over­all: “A nice, but odd, hops char­ac­ter: The flo­ral char­ac­ter has nice notes of rose petals, lemon, and spice, and the fruity fla­vors add an in­ter­est­ing note. It’s fairly light and bit­ter, more like a bit­ter blonde. Un­for­tu­nately the un­der­ly­ing beer isn’t up to the task of bal­anc­ing the bit­ter fin­ish.”
