[3003-20100628] Tap. Hint of cooked peas in the aroma. Clear, amber brown body with a quick foamy white head. Mild caramel sweet malt flavour has a toffee finish. Medium body. Interesting enough, a little boozy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2010-06-28. Crisp dark amber body with a modest beige head and lace. 3+ Flavour is pleasantly sweet malt with toasty accents, light balancing bitterness, lingering toasty caramel in the finish. Aroma of toasty malt, touches of caramel. 7+ Smooth average palate is nice but a touch light for the beer in my opinion. Pretty decent. Sampler at the brewpub, Pacific City.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Poured clear amber with a moderate sized head that faded quickly. Big malty aroma. A solid representation of the style with dark, caramel-toffee, toasted malts, and a tiny bit of hops to add an earthy leafiness. Also, I think the yeast created some nice tea-like and fruity, juice tones.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle from 16th St.Liquor in West Van. Deep dark copper beer with not much of a head. Aroma was subdued but, after careful sniffing, got slight hints of peat and smoky malt. Taste though ok was a let down some nice smooth malts and a slight smokiness and peat..this is as the bottle said an "Export style" Scottish ale. No, not really. Sort of thin in the mouth but yet decent. Iím someone who expects Scottish Ale to be at least 6% alcohol. After all this was quite a nice drinkable beer..but dont expect a Scotch ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampler tray at the brewpub. Poured a light copper color with a thin white head and minimal lacing. Aroma was caramel, malt, peat, earthen hops. Flavor was grainy, caramel malt, light peat. Very thin mouthfeel, quite uninspiring.
