Many years ago,the people of Scotland referred to their ales by the price one paid for them. In classic style of the Highlanders, our Scottish Export Ale is rich, malty and smooth. Itís deep mahogany color is accompanied by a caramel sweet aroma with hints of smoke. The flavor is malt centered and sweet with hints of toffee. Itís finish is remarkably smooth and sweet but not cloying. Perfect for springís cool evenings on the patio.

I had a pint of this beer on tap at the brewpub. Its appearance was a semi-cloudy copper-brown color with a slight amber hue, with a small, foamy, off-white head that had good lacing and cling, but little retention. The beer had a rich malty aroma with notes of caramel and toffee, and some subtle hops notes of grain and perhaps pine. Its flavor was sweet and malty with notes of caramel and a light touch of fruit, along with a very slight earthy bitterness. It was a wet, watery beer with low carbonation and light fizz to go with a smooth body that resulted in a medium-full mouthfeel. A good, interesting beer, but not one of their best.

Draft at brewpub. Smooth and malty, deep brown with a tall foamy head. A little creamy with just faint smoke / peat. Very enjoyable beer.
