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.

Pale amber-gold pour. Sweet toasted malt and a bit of crystal as well. Dry and well-attenuated though.

Clear copper with good, creamy, off-white head / Nose of spun sugar, malt, and faint citrus / Light to medium body, a touch watery, modestly sweet and sticky, with otherwise good balance and finish / Simple, weak, clean flavors of spun sugar, orange, and resin / Has promise.

Draft. Rich amber beer with a dark cream head. Light caramel aroma. Toasty malt and light caramel flavor. Medium bodied. Toasted malt and light caramel lingers with light backing hops.

pours a clear amber with a very small white head that goes away qucikly and no lacing. smell is faint, some caramel, some malt, and a tad bit of roastiness. taste is thick, butterscotch, malt, caramel, earthy, and a few hops. ends a little bitter and a little dry. overall not that impressive.

Pours clear copper with white head. Grain and malt, maybe a hint of smoke. Needs a bit more substance.

I honestly do not know how professional brewers dare to put their name on beers like this, much less call it a certain style. This beer is thin, smells like straw, tastes worse, and has no redeeming features.

hopscotch (10612) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Bottle… Clear dirty-orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. The aroma is a toasty, malty blend of roasted barley and rich, buttery toffee. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The perfectly-balanced flavor offers moderately roasted caramel malts and faint acidity. Crisp, clean finish. Not exciting, but very drinkable.

From notes. Originally reviewed 4/11/2009. Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass. MacPelican’s pours a caramel amber color, quite cloudy. A medium sized head fades quickly, leaving a few stray spots. These, too, eventually fade. Not very impressive. A light smoked caramel aroma, with some notes of peaches and apricots. Not a very aggressive smell at all. The style definitely comes through here - not much hops at all, but a strong malt presence throughout each sip. The malt gives a caramel flavor. Lightly carbonated and a surprisingly light feel, almost watery. A stronger body would not hurt this beer at all. Not really all that enjoyable or special. As is my experience with other beers of the style, it is pretty easy to drink, but this beer just does not have enough unique characteristics to warrant a spot in my regular rotation.

Pours a light amber hinting at gold with a microfoam head. Smells like a scottish style ale, fruity esthers and caramel, floral, and slightly peaty. Light caramel sweetness with very minimal bittering and no distinctive hop flavor nor aroma. You instantly notice the relatively higher level of carbonation it gives a sharp edge and finish which is semi-metallic. It’s a mildly sweet ale with a dry alkali finish.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle straight from the brewery. Pours with a crystal clear orange to light copper body with a medium sized fluffy, white head that fades to a slightly smaller cap. Aromas are malty, slightly grainy, a slight hint of a spicy and grassy hop, seltzer, rich caramel, cereal and bready. Mild hints of a metallic nature that blow off. Flavors are bready, malty and rich with light caramel. Rich biscuit, clean yeast wise. Minimal hops. A real pleasure to drink. Supremely quaffable, nice malt balance and complexity, no off flavors. Mild but enjoyable. Medium to slightly higher than expected carbonation. Medium bodied. Hugely underrated (at least off of this batch).
