Scottish Ale, brewed in the Scottish Export style, is known for its full-bodied, malty and slightly smokey (yep, smoked barley!) flavor. Scottish Ale has much less hop character than its British counterparts. Our brewmaster loves its orangey color, smokey aroma and its caramel sweetness.

Beautiful ruby red color, malty with a note of citrus especially in the finish. Good.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, pour is dark red with thin white head, aroma brought notes of roast, some slight caramel, toffee, molasses, touch of grass. Taste is some slight mineral, nice slight caramel, toffee, finishing fairly sweet fairly sweet, some slight biscuit. Nice brew, but nothing incredible about it.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of JStax. Thanks! JetsonFest II. Clear reddish brown with a cream colored head. Nutty, a touch smoky, sweet maple, caramel aroma. A bit sharply sweet, thick caramel, dull ashy smoky, sweet malty flavor. Ok.

On tap at CBC, pours ruby, not much head or lacing. Almost no aroma, has some nice roasted favors but overall pretty bland and not much body. Not a CBC favorite of mine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewery. Poured a nice amber color with a small tan head. The nose was malty and sweet. I did not get the usuall caramel suspect you get in most Scottish ales. It was good but I feel it was too hoppy for this style.

Had on tap at CBC. I love CBC and usually enjoy their offerings. I love Scottish ales too, but this one just didnt wow me. The pour was gorgeous. A nice clear amber color. Overwhelming aroma of hops though. Flavor was some smoke, VERY little sweetness, and a bitter finish. I dont know that I have ever had such a one sided Scottish Ale. It was very hoppy which is not something I look for in a Scottish Ale. Overall, it was okay, and drinkable, I just dont know if it was to style

draft.... this was the most underwhelming beer of the taster, a bit smokey but tasted a bit generic and metallic, bitter... not a fan

light amber, good head, light lacing. Taste of roasted caramel malt, and also some hazelnut (or maybe almond) giving it a unique flavor. Light bittering at the finish. Drinkable, but low key for a Scottish ale.

Slightly smoky aromas. Pours a dark orange with a small white head. A little caramel and peat flavors. Overall an average Scottish ale.
