Scottish Ale is our interpretation of the hearty brews native to Scotland. A shade darker than our Bitter, with a rich, slightly sweet first impression on the palate that rounds out to a satisfying maltiness and a medium-dry hop finish.

12 oz. version, which is filtered, is brewed at Shipyard Brewing in Portland; 22 oz. version, which is not filtered and only sold locally, is brewed at Gritty McDuff’s in Freeport

On tap at Gritty McDuffs, Portland. Amber colour with a pretty non existent head. Strong aroma of earthy malt. Very rich flavour with a hint of spices. Didn’t hit the spot.

12 ounce bottle pours amber with a nice solid cream head. Kind of weak caramel smell but it still is good once you can catch a whiff. The taste is some caramelized malt along with some hops. Very easy to drink and tasty scotch ale Would buy again

Bonused bottle in trade from joepais (pastor). Thanks dude!
Pours a dark amber with a bubbly and short lived beige head. Smell is slightly thin, and smoky, peaty, and very much to style. Taste is subtly smoked maltiness, lightly hopped, and peaty. Light bodied and an easy drinking scotch ale. Not bad, but just not a preferred style.

(Bottle). Sweet malty aroma. Color is reddish amber, with a very small head. Flavor caramelly malt, followed by a mild dryish finish. Not great, but better than some other choices from this brewer.

daknole (8540) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Bottle from my Vermont vacation. Amber color wtiha small white head. This does not taste like a scottish ale to me. Aroma was fine with malts, honey and some hops. Overall the flavor was just too hoppy for the style. I dont expect this much hop flavor in a scottish.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thin off white head that quickly dissapears. Aroma was grassy and piney. Tasted sweet with an oaky tinge.
