This Scottish Style Export Ale gets its unique flavor and aroma through a special time consuming, extra long and vigorous boil. The caramelization blends perfectly with the malty flavor of roasted barley and complementing hops. Raise a glass of this very drinkable ale to ANY occasion.

hoosiers1994 (684) - Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Bottle pours light brownish red with foamy light tan head. Aromas of grain, flowers and sweet malt. Taste is plastic tasting some malty overtones. The body on this is way too thin for the style. Overall, not a great scotch ale.

bhensonb (12968) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. Pours very dark amber with a slight creamy beige head. Aroma is lightly smoky caramel. Near full bodied. Flavor is a bit thin, but there is some light smoke, some toffee aspects, and it’s got some bitter in it. Pleasant.

bottle from mix pack. clear copper with small white head. nose is subtle toffee and black tea. nice toasted buttery caramel flavor. low hops and fitting abv that doesn’t get in the way. medium body and smooth. no peaty smoky notes but it’s any easy drinking and highly palatable scotch beer.

The aroma is earthy, peat, smoke, caramel. The appearance is clear red/brown, off-white head. The flavor is like the aroma, less earth and more caramel. The finish is resiny, piney hops. Medium in body. Not bad at all.

jcr (2424) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Bottle. Brown body with a short, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, earthy peat. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Roast/coffee dryness. Medium body, watery texture, average carbonation. The aroma and flavor are dominated by the roasted malts, though not overly strong. Tastes an awful lot like a roasty brown ale. Less sweet than many Scotch ales. Not complex, but pleasant tastes of roast, peat with a little tobacco thrown in.

Pours a coffee brown with a very thin carmel head. Smells of roast (almost of coffee) with a bit of caramel. Somewhat sweet with the fait hint of bitter. Not much too this beer. I’ve only drank coffee once, but based on the smell of coffee I would say it drinks like a light roast of coffee with a hint of milk. I guess if you’re a coffee drinker you would love this beer especially if you need an evening cold beverage in the winter.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5769) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2011
I am not a huge fan of this style but this one really impressed me +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel-brown color with a medium sized foamy tan head that faded fairly quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy caramel, sweet malts and a bit of nut. The flavor was tangy caramel, sweet malts, light butterscotch and hints of wood and tobacco. The finish was long, sweet, malty and had lingering caramel. Well done.

popery (1742) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Bottle. The appearance is deep amber and mildly cloudy. It has a nice sudsy, off-white head. The aroma is caramel malt, a nutty tone, some earth and a little wood. It’s kinda weak but decent. The taste is mildly sweet and toasty. There’s a lemon twang in the finish. Mouthfeel is normal - smooth, sudsy. It’s a fine, calm beer. Easy to drink and inoffensive.

Bottle. Toffee malt and hay aroma. Clear brown color with small head. Sweet toffee malt and light bitter hay flavor. Very nice.
