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.

Bottle, LCBO. Amber pour, huge fluffy white head with orange tints. Dusty malt aroma - really reminded me of a grain silo (don’t asked - I played a lot in grain silo’s 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.

Bottle. Pours a brown copper, thin white head, no lace. Nose is sweet , caramel, fruity, and a little off metallic scent. Tastes thin and rather smoky off the start, it’s really not good. There’s a sweetness, but I’m thinking this isn’t the way it normally should taste.

Not a big fan of this. Kind of smells like a can of fresh tennis balls...and that?s the highlight.

Cloudy golden brown body with a light thin head. Aroma is sweet with some caramel and grain notes, though quite faint. Taste is sweet butterscotch caramel throughout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AgentAle (1400) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
Aroma is a rich roasty maltiness which has slight whiskey cask scents. Light caramel and butterscotch aswell. Taste is a medium rich malt body. Again butterscotch and caramel notes, getting some vanilla and rye here aswell. Very oale bitterness on finish. Appearance is a clear bronze body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

650 ml bottle. Pours a clear copper colour with a thin off-white head. Sweet aroma of malt and caramel. Sweet flavour of malt, caramel and a hint of smoke with a slightly dry, bitter finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Well brewed.

BrewGoblin (633) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
A fine lil’ pooch lads, fine indeed. A dark tanned Scottish man with a decent white hat. Smoke, wood, earth, caramel and leather in the scent and taste. A bit of a butterscotch basement but nothing wrong with that in this case. I wish the texture was as thick as a Scottish beard though, t’is a wee bit thin.

Bottle. Hazy copper pour. Malty aroma, caramel, some smoke. Taste is much the same malt, some smoke and caramel. Very drinkable beer
