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

I found this beer a sticky sweet with a harsh bitter finish. Way more bitter than I had expected.

Well, I’ll agree with both below. It’s not bad, it’s got some nice flavors, but it just needs some more body.

I’ll have to agree with VENOM on this one. It was just way too thin for a Scottish Ale. Not bad, but not a Scottish.

A decent Scottish Ale with a nice malt profile and light hop bitterness. A little on the thin side and an overall average Scottish Ale. Not bad though for a place that looks like an A-bomb went off minutes earlier.
