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.

Wow, over 1000 ratings and Iím finally rating what RB considers a Scottish Ale for the first time. Wish I could say it was a good one, but this was...meh. Clear orangish-copper color with a nice lasting white head. Aroma is caramel, grain, earth, and roast. Flavor is a little grainy and slightly roasty with caramel malt, toffee, butter, and peat. Body is medium-light and finish is slightly dry. Drinkable, but not very exciting.

On tap at the brewery on 6/27/09. Pours a dark orange, light eggshell head. Great caramel and toffee aroma, hint of pine and earth. Nice sweet flavor with a touch of dryness on the finish.

Pours a clear copper with a thin ring of foam and no lace. Thin, vaguely peaty aroma, sweet and lightly yeasty. Peaty, buttery and sweet, unpleasant finish. Thin lightly carbonated body. Meh.

drfabulous (4332) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUN 15, 2009
Was excited to see this on the shelf at Samís Chicago. Pours fine. Taste is caramel but not intense. Very light body and lightly hopped. Bordering the amber. Nice, but not the level I expected given Pelicanís reputation.

Headbanger (3425) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2009
22oz bottle 5/8/09 (Samís Wine & Spirits-Downers Grove)-Pours a medium amber with a huge off white head and an aroma of malt, sweetness, caramel, and light hops. Taste of malt and caramel and then goes into a little hops. This light bodied brew is pretty well balanced and quite drinkable. Nice brew.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 22, 2009
Bottle courtesy of bhensonb: Pours a transparent copper amber with a thin, wispy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of sweet, lightly oxidized caramel malt and some light fruity notes. Body starts with a pretty full caramel malty sweetness and some earthy hops and toffee with a touch of cardboard before a drier finish. This bottleís a little past its prime, but this is still a drinkable brew with decent complexity.

TheAlum (6027) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2009
22 oz bottle from Samís South Loop (Chicago, IL). Pours a rusty darker amber, slight haze, with moderate tannish head that subsides to a small layer. Light spots of lacing. Aromas preach malts, pushing carmel, toffee, biscuits with vanilla and creaminess. Light florals covered by malts. A touch of toast. Initial fills the style well, lighter bodied than expected, with a good malt body of carmel and toffee, vanilla and cream, with biscuits and a touch of toast. Good, sessionable, and I like the malts. Finish pushes light bitterness on the palate and aftertase, but largely carmel, toffee, and caramel dance. Good, light on body though. Cheers!

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2009
Bomber from the Samís in Downers Grove, Illinois: Itís been a while since Iíve had a "Scottish Ale," mayhaps ícause it be a mythical beast. This beastie pours a clear amber body with a thick ecru head. Pretty light aroma (and thin over all) - sweet grainy malt with a splash of caramel and some orchard fruit. Light-bodied, to be sure. It tastes of caramel, toasty grain, and fresh apples. The finish is a watery caramel memory.

22. Pours a crystal clear garnet with a towering tan head, lots of suds and lace as it settles. Attractive nose of caramel, peat, raisins, and figs. Creamy medium body. Woody, leafy mid-palate with tons of peat, a bit of roast, and lots of brown bread. Very appealing and complex, and right on point with the earthy notes. Refreshing.

Skyview (5282) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Purchased a 22-oz bomber from the breweryís internet sales. Pours a dark orange amber brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin white ring. Aroma of caramel and multi-grain malt with some dried pitted dark fruits, flowery hops and a touch of toffee. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of caramel malt, some flowery and citrus hops with toffee. Finish is semi-sweet with some hop bitterness balanced with some grain.
