3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Originally rated Novermber 2008. Enjoyed at the brewpub itself (written "ale écossaise à l’avoine" beside its title on the chalkboard). Poured a cloudy beige-brown colour with a caramel malt nose and a touch of maple syrup. The mouthfeel was watery with a little fizz. Grainy malt taste with a mild hoppiness in the finish. Very interesting brew that is a great session ale. Refreshing and tasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught, 5.4% at the brewpub. Weak roasted aroma. Muddy amber colour. Smalltan head. The flavour is roasted. Has a faint berry hint. Not sweet. A bit rougher than expected.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy muddy amber hue, with a beige head, with a yeasty, soft wet earthy maltiness, oat nose, with some mild floral hop leafy, grassy hop accents in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, old earthy malty, cereal character with a kind of wet rotten flowery hop leafy, grassy note, and a faint fruity , caramel flavor, leading towards a leafy, grassy hop bitterness finish. I don’t know where they are going with this beer, cannot be a scottish ale way too hoppy for the style.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2010 Tap at the brewpub. Rather dark pour, a bit of white head. Aroma of grain, I can really pick up the distinctive oat aromas, smells like an oatmeal stout with a ton of small fruit. Seriously, smelling this beer is like sticking your nose into a berry pie or at least as close as it gets without actually adding fruit to the beer. The oats also come out bitter in the taste, but balanced with the nice scottish ale sweetness. Palate is a bit thin. Overall, another successful experiment by the guys who turn everything they touch into gold.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Dieu du Ciel. The color is a hazu brown with a beige head. The aroma is of oats and malt with a sweetness of caramel. The taste also of malt and oats with added sweet fruits and a bit of hops. The aste is not your average Scottish ale but very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A very hoppy, yeasty and toasted some-kind-of-ale. Original stuff. Very good.
How: Tap at brewpub, new 2008 batch (hadn’t been brewed in 4 years!)
The look: Cloudy brownish-orange topped by a medium beige head
In long: This very yeasty and well malted beer offers a lot of toasted oatmeal cookies and caramel followed by a lot of orangy and foresty hops with long tasty bitter finish. A little cedar sensation from start to finish gives an overall impression of sawdust in caramel. This is a tasty and nourishing beer, too nourishing to be considered a true session ale. So hoppy that it felt like some pleasant original (even weird) almost-IPA. I usually don’t care for Scottish ales but I really liked this one although I should say that it is about as traditional Scottish as singing Karaoke in a sake bar.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bu en fut sur place (20oz), le 19/10/08. La boue brune vaseuse, un anneau de collet. Arome d’orge malté, un peu chocolaté avec beaucoup d’avoine. Goùt d’orge et d’avoine en collision, faiblement sucré avec une finission alcoolisé amère. Dans doute la plus douce dans ce style que j’ai bu, bien que j’en ai pas beaucoup bu!

Mild, sweet, fruity aroma. Fairly clear brown colour with shy white fully diminishing head. Fruity and sweet with a light toastiness. Full feeling, smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Sampled Spring 2004.
