Think the Scotish brewers who bought us this very pleasant pale ale might be concerned at it being described as an english pale ale.
A winner of several awards including the champion beer of Scotland in 2001 this is a full bodied amber ale with an underlying fruitiness. Quite full bodied and with more depth than you would normally expect in a 4.1 per center. Highly recommended.

Light copper color. Nose is bready and nutty. Flavor is biscuity, toasty, buttery, and nutty, but taste dies quickly, not much finish. A bit astringent, bottle may have been somewhat oxidized.

This beer puts the "pale" in pale ale, which I think it's tries to hard for. An incrediblty bitter beer, even for my tastes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A light amber beer with a fine but disappearing head. The aroma is sweet and malty. The flavor is also sweet and malty with notes of fruit. A really good pale ale.

Bottled. Golden with lacy white head. Grassy herb aroma atop a good malt and hop structure. Plenty of everything in this beer which makes it nice to talk to.

Half of a gift set from the Inveralmond Brewery this is a pleasantly bitter ale. It actually reminds me of one our homebrew batches with a bit less hops (which is a good thing - the batch was far too bitter!) I enjoyed this one a lot. Very drinkable. Hopefully the other bottle in the set will be just as good.
