Strangebrewer (859) - Chatham, Ontario, - SEP 24, 2013
bottle. Poured clear deep amber with no head. Very subdued aroma, malty with notes of brown sugar. Thick but creamy mouthfeel, medium body with just a touch dry finish. Flavour is sweet and bready, caramel malt with a roasted note. A really nice session.

Copper pour with a quick fading eggshell head. Toffee and nuts on the nose with a little cooked fruit. Mostly the same on the palate but less well defined. Finishes slightly sweet with a little earthy note.

Bottled sample at ribeye jacks. Copper in colour. Bit metallic. Did not like this one at all. Rare to not finish a beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Apparence: D?une couleur brun caramel translucide, elle est coiffée d?une mousse moyenne d?une bonne durée. Effervescence quasi inexistante. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des notes de malt caramélisé et de fruits des champs. Saveurs: Au goût, c’est décevant ou c’est moi qui ne connaît pas les différences en une Scotch Ale et une Scottish Ale. Très léger en bouche avec de faible note de malt caramélisé. Pratiquement aucune amertume sauf une très légère en finale et aucune effervescence. Fiche technique Style: Scottish Ale Format: 650 ml Taux d?alcool: 5,4%

675 ml. Aroma of toffee and roasted malts. Taste of bitter hops. Appearance is amber with white head. Overall: great ale from a small town.

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
650ml bottle pours amber in color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with some light smoke. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a herbal bitterness and a light smoky finish. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A decent brew for the style, but there are better ones out there.

Amber pour, no head. Aroma is toasty malts, light caramel and a touch of honey. Light flavour, short finish for a Scottish Ale.

Canmoore (260) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
Pours a rich amber with a thin tan head, aroma includes smoke, nuts, toffee, fruits and tannins. Taste includes rich toasty malts, fruity, hoppy, and a nutty finish. Not bad at all!

650 ml bottle from LCBO. Nice enough, drinkable beer. Nothing extraordinary, however. Nice dark brown ale, with very little head and light carbonation. Very watery mouthfeel, and malty in flavour. I liked it, but no more or less than many other examples of ales out there.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2013
Pours clear, light amber with a minimal tan head. Aroma of toasted malt, slight caramel, slight fruity esters. Malty up front, with some caramel and toast, surprisingly clean finish with a touch of hops. Medium body. Some smoke and/or wood in the finish. Really quite nice!
