Empyrean Burning Skye Scottish Ale

The Empyrean Brewing Company is in Lincoln, Nebraska. This is their 5.3% ABV Scottish ale. The name is a play on words, one may see a "burning sky" and the Isle of Skye is part of Scotland.

The beer pours an orange, amber and copper in color. There is over an inch of somewhat creamy off-white head. The aroma is relatively light, with malty, nutty, roasted, and some caramel. The taste follows the aromas and adds in a peat smoke note. The finish is very dry and lightly bitter. The beer is medium bodied and moderately carbonated.
