COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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. Donít chill this one too much

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.

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.

Thanks to my friend Aaron Miles for the bottle of this gem--Poured a thin chestnut-mahogany-brown body with a nice medium-sized fluffy whitish head. Crisp roasted malt nose with sticky sweetness. Light yet chewy and with a caramelized smooth finish that is quite enjoyable. Here is another style of beer that I normally donít go gaga over, but Pelican is a world class brewer who does great things with brew!

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.

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.

Had this 22 oz bomber at the Elizabeth Street Inn on the beach at Newport ,Oregon, sitting on the balcony watching the daylight sink below the Pacific ocean on a wonderful warm late October Saturday ( yesterday). In appearance this is a deep dark copper beer with not much of a head but nice lace. Wow a real peaty almost smokey in a Islay Single malt whisky sort of way..intrigueing and very good. After the great smell the 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 much like the macEwans export I used to drink in Scotland ( perversly its called McEwans IPA now). Sort of thin in the mouth but yet it satisfies. After all this was quite a nice drinkable beer..but dont expect a Scotch ale.

shadey (1899) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 16, 2008
On tap as part of the sampler tray at the Brewery. Fairly light in flavor for a Scottish ale, but easy to appreciate. Toasted caramel is the predominate flavor. Just enough hops to clean it up. Very drinkable.
