On tap at the brewpub.
Look: medium amber body with a very good, off-white head.
Pleasing aroma features caramel malts. .
Flavor: a bit more hops than the aroma suggests, leaving this overall mildly bitter. Plenty of caramel nonetheless. Ferris (16266) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2015
Draft - Butterscotch and caramel. Clear gold with a decent beige head. Butterscotch and caramel. Light sweetness, but OK. Theydon_Bois (20425) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2013
One part of the ticking game I hate when clean sweeping a brew pub/tap is Scotch/Scottish/Och Aye Ales - I particularly loathe those with stupid fucking made up Scottish names ... I remain impartial of this fact on my rating however ...
Tap at Cascade Lakes, Bend, 23/05/13.
Clear dark amber with a thin off white head.
Nose is dark malt, dark fruits, toffee.
Taste is malt forward, caramel, dark fruit, sugars.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, some bitterness in the finish.
Yawn. BlackEyePA (573) - USA - JUL 18, 2012
Pretty decent, good representation of the style. Made well, nutty, med bod maltiness with ok finish, didnt like the grainy mouthfeel, but overall not bad SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Draught at the brewhouse in Redmond. Clear amber with a lasting white head. Earthy caramel aroma with a touch of peat. Moderate caramel sweetness but well attenuated besides the crystal malt. Low hops and a touch earthy. Medium-light bodied and smooth. Earthy caramel is the game here. OK but not great.

Beautiful amber body - brown with ruby tint. Toasted malt body with rich caramel and light grassy hops. Kind of plain but really well done. anders37 (26878) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2008
Draft @ 7th St Brewhouse, Redmond, OR. Pours a pale amber color with a small off-white head. Has a sweetish malty caramel aroma. Roasted malty caramel and chocolate flavor. Has a slightly roasted malty caramel finish. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2006
Rich, heary and malty, A tad dry on the palate. Caramel malt dominates the flavor with a lively carbonation rounding out a chewy lingering finish. Very soft and very light for the style, this was very easy to drink, but forgettable. IndianaRed (4933) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 31, 2005
On Tap at Cascade Lakes Lodge Medium redish-brown witha nice lasting off white head. Very good even sheeting lacing. Fairly deep woody aroma and a full deep malty flavor. Hops were pretty light per the style and a soft carbonation level. Slightly chalky feel and a papery/cardboard aftertaste. Not bad though DarkElf (3066) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 26, 2005
(Draft: Seventh Street Brewhouse in Redmond, OR) Sweet and very fruity nose, reminiscent of apricots, is very enticing. A bit more toasty malt comes out in the flavor, but it’s still quite sweet and very fruity, with a light bitterness adding some balance, but not intruding on the fruitiness. Medium "plus" body maintains a pleasant and substantial mouthfeel long into the finish. Light amber colored body has a nearly white head. Considerable amount of delicate lace is left on the glass. Though listed as an amber on their beer menu, it’s sweeter and fruitier than most ambers I’ve tried. It comes across as more of a Scottish style ale, and I really enjoyed this very flavorful brew.
