St. Andrew’s Ale

500 mL bottle from Rollers, Coligny Plaza, Hilton Head, SC, USA.
Nice mid-orange, slightly clouded pour with some haze. Head is not huge, rather fluffy, light and made from large bubbles. Carbonation is light.
Very simple malts in the nose.
The tastes are not as malty as the nose would suggest. It is very peaty, more so than I expected. Definitely some earth and soil notes present. Finishes with a little touch of alcohol, some bitter dry notes and more of the peat. The soil notes make the beer seems a little musty, and if I didn’t know better I would think this were a bit old.
Definitely not the huge malt bomd I was expecting and it is a lot drier than I was anticipating. Interesting.
