2015 BJCP Category: 14C Scottish Export

AROMA: Low maltiness with faint confectionery notes and red fruit. Nose is mild overall, though. 7/12

APPEARANCE: Clear dark copper/burgundy hue. Large off-white foam quickly and completely dissipates. 1/3

FLAVOR: Mild, bland palette. Malt-focused, but little distinct character. Trace confectionery notes; slightly minerally. No hop presence. Can is fairly fresh but seems old, though no signs of oxidation. 8/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; low carbonation. Watery texture. Smooth and easy to drink; clean aftertaste. 2/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Entirely too bland to enjoy. No glaring flaws, just not to style. 4/10

TOTAL SCORE: 22/50
