Wee Heavy-er Scotch Style Ale

Between the first and the second review I have visited French Broad in Asheville! This second experience seems much better in the appearance depratment and although a touch acidic, it tastes and drinks much better than my experience of a year ago. Scores adjusted accordingly.

22 oz bomber as part of a sampling at The Brick Store courtesy of Dave. Simple brown body with disappointing head and lace.
Malty beer (obvioulsy) but the overwhelming notion that I left with was a lack of body. Watery? No, but for the style it lacked depth. Alcohol presence seemed a little above the 7.00% too, which gave it an edge that I was not looking for.
Lacked smoothness for me which IMO is a critical characteristic of the style. My first adventure with French Broad and although OK, lacked satisfaction. Onward and upward, and hopefully their other offereings will excite me more.
