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.

phaleslu (9017) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2011
22 oz. bottle from the brewery. Pours a clear amber color with a small beige head. Aroma of nuts, earth, grass, fruit (peach, plum), and toasted malts. Flavor brings the same fruits, toasty sweet malts, grassy earth, and mixed nuts as the aroma but a bit more balanced and pronounced. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a fruity, toasty mouthfeel. I tried this along with the MacPelican’s Wee Heavy and determined once and for all that I like the bigger malts of the Scotch ales better than the lighter, more subtle Scottish ales.

Aubrey (3508) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Draft at brewery: Even though it tasted OK in general, stylistically, this beer seemed a bit off. For one, it lacked the typical characteristics (i.e., higher alcohol, burnt roast, peat, light smoke, little sweetness) you find in most Scottish Ales. And for two, it had an odd cola-like sweetness and a slight fruitiness. Not undrinkable, just curiously odd.

bu11zeye (12576) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2011
(Draught) Pours a clear copper body with a medium white head. Aroma of peat, caramel, light oxidation, and roasted malt. Flavor of roasted malt, earth, caramel, some stale graham cracker, and peat.

troopie (2290) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - NOV 25, 2010
Bottle. Poured hazy red with thin off white head. Foam rather than lacing. Aroma is malt, with a bit of currant and peach. Full bodied, malty flavour, more fruit. Malty finish with a bit of roast. Don’t chill this one too much

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Bomber from Belmont Station. Medium red-amber color with a small, off-white head. Fruity caramel, sweet malt, lightly floral and peach fruity aroma. Rich and malty flavor with some toasty malt, fruity caramel, some strawberry, peach, and light hops and bitterness. Medium bodied. Interesting fruity notes and not too sweet despite being squarely malty in balance. Good stuff.

Bottle, purchased from the brewery in the spring. Dark amber, 2-finger golden head. Pleasantly malty aroma and flavour, caramel and toast, mild autumn leaf hops in the finish. A good session ale.

[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.

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2010
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.
