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 from Firefly, Vancouver
Beautiful dark amber color, clean; medium sized head. Aroma of malt and caramel, but too mild. The body is round enough, the mouthfeel is soft; good malt and caramel flavor, above the average, without the annoying burnt malt of other Scotch Ales; there is light residual sweetness and a hint of smoke; correct bitterness; the final shows also a light nutty side.
Not exciting, but well brewed.

A little smokey taste, better when cold, that left a moderate sour finish. OK for Octoberfest , a serviceable beer,but not an exceptional beer. Mild smoke aroma.

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.

2010-07-18. Crisp copper body with a small off-white head, and light lace. 3+ Dusty toasty malt with odd tang in the malt. 6+ Flavour is similar, starts pleasantly, sweet malt takes on a less than ideal tangy character as it progresses. Average palate. Meh, not to my tastes today. Bottle shared by Blankboy

mcberko (7236) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2010
650mL bottle, pours vibrant orange. Aroma of caramel malts. Flavour of caramel malt, some sweetness, and some faint bourbon. Not bad.

DuffMan (7032) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 15, 2010
Bottle, shared with my brother-in-law. Pours an amber gold with an average white head. The aroma is-- and I kid you not-- tinned dog food. Itís meaty and metallic, like fucking DOG FOOD! Really hard to put this to my lips after that attention grabber. Flavours are thankfully more beerish, with light caramel malt, a little meaty smoke, and a mildly bitter finish. Not at all what a scotch ale should be in my mind. Just weird really.

mabel (6777) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2010
[3138-20100718] 650mL bottle. Brewery spent grains aroma has peat, moss, and earthy malt and some mild creamed corn notes. Clear, amber orange body with a quick creamy off-white head. Earthy grains and peat moss malt flavour has a sweet grains aftertaste. Medium body. Average.
Overheard: "Call me a taxi." "OK, youíre a taxi."

My bottle [650ml] shared with HogTownHarry, jerc & mabel. Pours a clear orange-amber with an average size fluffy off-white head. Malty aroma along with a bit of smoke and very light hops. Flavour: Meh, kind of whatever, thereís caramel malt with mild smoke and light hops. Average bodied. I donít know, thereís something about this beer that I donít care for.

HogTownHarry (6130) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2011
July 18, 2010. 650ml bottle shared by blankboy with me, jerc & mabel. Clear copper pour, average and diminishing off-white head. Smell - caramel, sweet, thick, a hint of barnyard funky well-used straw. Taste follows, but less manure and more boring grassiness, hardly as much malt as was promised in the bouquet. Light, almost watery mouthfeel, a bit syrupy, very still, with a quick finish and pretty much no aftertaste .... mostly just boring.
