COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of the Scottish Export style is coppery amber in color and features a mild, malty aroma. The malty flavor is balanced with Willamette hops to add a little "snap" to the flavor and finish of this rich ale.

Iím not very impressed. Someone from Pelican was offering samples so I bit and long story short, itís not that great. Itís not bad either, but it is bland, lifeless and uninspiring. The only thing I notice is a slightly bitter aftertaste. Seriously, there just ainít much going on here. As a Scotsman this disappoints me.

On tap at the brewery. Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma of pale and caramel and nutty malts plus dough and a faint bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad.

BelgianBeerGal (3383) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Randomly enough a bottle from UT state liquor store picked because I wanted a Scottish ale tick. Nice bronze color with a medium, tan head. Light aroma of sweeter caramel malt. Great flavor that balances the malt with a hint of hoppy bitterness. Very pleasant.

(Bottle) The worst Scottish ale Iíve had. Cola taste, thin body, astringent aftertaste. This is a very bad beer.

On tap at Pelican Pub in Pacifc City. Pours a hazy copper with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is bready malt, caramel, nuts. Thin mouth, rich malt, nuts, caramel, raisin, light dryness, good.

Bottle to mini snifter. pours dark copper to red with a medium of white head that dies quickly to leave nearly nothing. Aroma is sweet and toffee with a slight crusty and bready note. Taste is a mix of hop bitterness with a sweet toffee and caramel back bone. Finish shows just a tad bit of dry roastiness in the very back of the finish. A very faint smokiness or it could be the light chocolate. Iím rather impressed by this one, considering it is typically a less than exciting style.

beer-yum (816) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 9, 2015
Restrained aroma with cloudy copper colour. Flavour is nicely balanced to start and gently gives way to a light bitter finish. An interesting alternative to the regular pale ale.

Danyel (1335) - Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Tap at Pelican in Tillamook. Pours clear deep orange with white head. Aroma is caramel, very malt forward... Taste is dirty, a bit thin, low carbonation, medium-bodied. Overall, no good.

Salmoniform (1227) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Golden hue with creamy white head. Aroma is burnt malt, honey, esters, hay. Mouthfeel is ok with a medium body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet with an astringent following and estery finish. Overall this isnít that great.
