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.

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.

AgentAle (1113) - 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.

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.

Bomber from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass. 17DE12.

App.: Hazy deep copper with a thin white rim. Aroma: Big, thick, rich, boozy malts, lots of caramel and brown sugar, fairly fruity, so sweet, maybe a touch of brightness, MALT!! Palate: Medium+ body, slightly prickly effervescence. Flav.: Big fruity maltiness, less than the nose a touch smoky, still a fair bit of caramel/toffee/brown sugar; somewhat sweet with moderate bitterness and a reasonable malty finish.

Pretty good.

Amber color and hazy. Lighter aroma then expected with smoke, dried fruit, burnt sugar and soapy aromas. Medium bodied with low hops and medium malt content, clean and smooth but not nearly the flavor profile I was expecting from a proper scotch ale... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
