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.

Draft: Sour malt nose. Clean amber color. A certain taste I associate with lager. Nutty/sour. Clean drinkin, some linguring bitterness. Good beer, though it seems off from what I think of a scottish.

22 oz bottle. Bought in June 09. Poured in my standard shaker, kicks up a golden head in about half the glass. Dark end of amber in color. Rich malty smell from a distance, a little more when I put my nose in it. Scottish ale always makes me think of peat, so I decide I smell that in there, too. I know from the abv listing not to expect a heavy ale, and thatís what I find. Light, sessionable beer. Toasted malts not enough to make up for a thin mouthfeel. Goes down nicely with balanced hops. But after half the bottle, a noticeable taste of dead yeast.

Draft @ KLCC Microbrew Festival: Pours a dark brown color with a smaller off-white head. Aroma is sweet with malts, caramel, and kind of sugary. A little hoppiness in the flavor is coved by the brown sugar and caramel sweetness. Some dark fruitiness too. Quite enjoyable.

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.

Pours a very clear copper with a small white head. Nice caramel fruity malts up front give a good sweetness which, when battled by the light hop finish, the sweetness remains the victor. Very smooth

Draught at the Tap Room in Tillamook. Rich malty nose. Bright reddish/brown color. Rich roast initial / light hopping and a touch of spiciness / spritzy and balanced finish. Okay. True to style and fairly ordinary.

I thought this was a bit boring, but then my palate could have been overtaken by tasting through the winterfests. Big malty body with a sour fruitiness that is very unappealing. A bit of black pepper that is very subtle with lots of inviting caramel and just a hint of chocolate.

Tap @ brewery. Reddish orange and slightly brown. Aroma is sweet. It leaves a solid malty note with some grainy barley at the finish.

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.

I think this is the first Scottish style ale to have a flavor of watermelon in the beer. Watermelon? What the hell! Aroma was slightly smoky, but there was this odd sweetness to go with the smoky character which really drowned it out. The taste was also awfully sweet and I never did get any petey/smokeyness in the taste, which is a calling card of a good Scottish ale. This one finished smooth so it wasnít harsh or unpleasant in any way. Itís just kinda ....blah.
