For decades the Country Squire was a fine dining restaurant in Naramata. Following its fine example and carrying its name, Squire Scotch Ale is rich in both flavour and tradition. This variety of pale ale is defined by malt flavours that are strong and smoky with a touch of sweetness. The deep caramel colour and gentle hop profile round out this classic style ale.

Pours deep amber with very little head from bottle. Aroma has slight smokiness and slght hoppiness that when combined make for a medicinal aroma. Taste has the smokiness come through better but only mild at front with some malt and the smoke lingers after.

Gold with a hint or orange or red. Good whiff of peaty smoke and sweetness, taste balanced sweetness and fine noble hop center with nice plays of peat smoke, fruit, light toffee - extremely poised palate. Quaffable and satisfying.

Bottle, LCBO. Amber pour, huge fluffy white head with orange tints. Dusty malt aroma - really reminded me of a grain silo (donít asked - I played a lot in grain siloís on a farm when I was a kid). For that it gets extra points for helping me reconnect with my youth :) . Hint of smoke in there as well. Grainy, smokey taste. A bit sweet, no hint of the warming alcohol I expect in a Scotch Ale. Actually, that smoke really kicks in the the lingering finish - lasts a long time. A bit thin and not complex but better than I was lead to believe - solid brewery from my limited exposure so far.

Was pretty underwhelmed by this one. Itís not bad, itís just, I really like scotch ales, so I was expecting something more I guess. But the mouth feel was just too thin to really carry across any sort of malty depth. Aroma is sweet, light bit of toasty, and a bit of butter (diacetyl). The flavour is straight up malt, very faint smoke, butter (diacetyl). Has some potential, some would say this is easy drinking, but I feel itís way to thin to really be a scotch ale. Still, itís enjoyable.

Pale amber pour, small white head. Light toasted malt, toasted nuts, and quite a bit of peat. Medium carb, and mouthfeel. The finish is quite peaty, smoky, with light malts. Weak. And what is with all this peatiness?

Spab (2796) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2012
650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear orange/amber with small off-whiteish head. Aroma is toasty, slightly sour peat and grains. Flavour is toasty with a hint of smoke and notes of grains, peat and light caramel. A bit sour. Average body. Alright.

Amber pour with a tight white head. The aroma is a little bit toasty with some light chewy malt. A bit of fairly simple malt character through the middle. Slightly smoky but that is very light as well. Lighter palate than Iíd like. Lingering sweetness. Itís okay, but very generic.

pootzboy (1635) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2012
Bomber - decants an unfiltered light amber colored ale with a 2 finger cap. Aroma is malty, caramel a whiff of smoke and a wee bit of butterscotch (Diacetyl). Flavor is very malty, cara-malts prevalent, some smoke, long wet finish where a light Golding bite occurs. A serviceable scotch ale, malty, full bodied.

6%.2nd beer from this brewery & what an awsome brewery. Poured into my tall hobgobline glass that was released 1-2yrs ago. Big head that topped off like merang from a lemon merang pie then settled down to a bubbaly cola like head as it leaves. Beer is like an ambery red to light and pale orangey(pumpkin beer like)look like carbination. I dunno if I can smell fully well right now but what i get is like a light yeasty ale. Taste is good itís a little water,some granniness,some pie like taste like merange or crem burlay a little citrusy sour and stuff like that. Eather way itís easy drinking light on the hops bitterness when its detected and just really good. So far i dont get the smokyness ppl talk about. Now I like this a little more then there porter mabye and Im a dark beer fan. This is a good ale cheers
