UPDATED: SEP 22, 2012 22 oz bottle from Roth’s Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem. $2.79 Handsome chestnut brown ale with a large rocky eggshell white head. Bonnie indeed. Nice aromas of caramel and nuts wit a slight but pronounced smokey aspect lurking. Falavour is of course malt driven..the toffee,caramel aspects intrerrupted by a very very slight grassy hop..that kinda takes the sweetness down a notch,good, and again a slight ashy smoke in the end..excellent Great palate..smooth with a lingering peaty smoke. Very very nice for the price point the best Macs has done in forever.

12 ounce bottle from the State Store on 3300 South- thanks for the tip Dallas! Pours a mostly clear mahogany color with a small white head. A big malty nose with some figs and dust. The flavor is a smooth sweet malty brew with light bread, some yeast, dust, metal. Quite good and crisp.

Bomber from Malt & Vine as Portland Noble Scot. Pours deep dark orange (strong backlight) with a beige head. Light smoke aroma with some roasty malt. Med + body. Flavor is malty with some smoke. Almost peat. Not thinking this is subtle smoke. Not Paradox either, though. It’s definitely not dry, but it’s not yucky sweet either. Pretty good drink.

12oz bottle from the state store
Appearance: Pours clear dark amber with a small beige head and some lacing
Aroma: Toasted malts, smokey and caramel
Taste: Toasted malts, sweet caramel, grainy, smokiness and bitter citrus in the finish
A nice beer. This would be a great beer to take camping, sipping next to a campfire.

Out of the bottle from Bales. Pours a tan color with a coarse head that settled quickly. Smells and tastes malty without much hop characteristics. The taste is well balanced and makes this a good beer.

Bottle from Fred Meyer. Dark amber/brownish in color. Nose is quite roast with a good deal of maltiness. Roasty and smoked up front with some rich malt qualities. Finish is mildly hoppy.

The first Scottish Ale I recall truly enjoying. This one has a pleasant, appealing flavor. Nice and heavy too. Good on you, Mac!

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Huge malt nose with some toast and toffee. The flavor is lots of malts and fruity yeast. A nice malty Scottish ale.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle:   Deep amber, moderate frothy sandy head, nice lacing.   Sweet bready nose, slightly nutty and biscuity.   Not as sweet on the tongue, remains bready and nutty.   A bit toasted, subtle campfire.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Plain finish, soft toasted malt, nuttiness, with a bit of sweet breadiness.   No real peat, and the subtle campfire is gone by this time.   Lighter example of the style.   Decent, but needs to be a bit more complexity.

From bottle. Pleasing nutty flavor and deep brown ale aftertaste. Tastes better several weeks after buying.
