In the dance between malt and hops the Scotts favor the flavor of the malt. This brown ale is smooth and just a bit sweet, but very drinkable. Not the kind of taste you’d spend an extended afternoon with but certainly something tasty for the 11.3 ounces this bottle contained. Better than the more common brown ales and from a brewery deserving our respect I was glad to see this one in the mix.
Still, rated it only 5/10. Served at 38 degrees in a Guinness (did I cross a line?) pint glass.
