From bottle. Pleasing nutty flavor and deep brown ale aftertaste. Tastes better several weeks after buying.
On tap at Portland Brewing, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out toasted caramel and bready malt. Flavour is along the same lines, being more sweet in the carame department than anything, while still retaining a dry biscuity malt backbone. Pleasant enough but uninspiring as this style usually is. donandres (687) - Makati, PHILIPPINES - DEC 23, 2015
12 oz bottle poured to wine glass
Appearance: Deep dark brown color, clear, minimal head, minimal lacing
Smell: Strong smell of alcohol, malts, grains
Feel: not to much carbonation
Overall: Good beer, but not something to look for cblado (298) - Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2015
12 oz bottle. Labeled as Portland Brewing’s "Noble Scot". Pours a reddish mahogany color. Thick off-white head, some lacing. Aroma is smoked malt. Flavor is sweet caramel, with hints of smoky peat. Overall a very drinkable beer. monk191 (2022) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 14, 2015
A unique Scottish ale. Pours a clear amber with a tan head. Smells of malt and mint. More mint in the taste, along with a lot of maltiness. A bit one note. Had on tap at Pyramid Brewery for SF Beer Week. mjg74 (3199) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle from Fred Meyer. Dark amber/brownish in color. Nose is quite roast with a good deal of maltiness. Roasty and smoked up front with some rich malt qualities. Finish is mildly hoppy.

I poured my glass out of a 22oz bottle labeled as Portland Brewing Noble Scot, but how noble can you be if you have an alias. A little hazy copper orange, not real pretty, but she'll pass at a 5' distance. I get the caramel smoke aromas, but there is something else I can't place, which earns interest points. Sweet caramel up front with a smoky aftertaste. I'd order another. Cheers! Fatehunter (2640) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Pours a half finger of head on a hazy dark straw colored body.
The aroma mostly caramel with a little smoke and lemon in the background.
The taste has lots of caramel, toasted malt and some smoke. Nice profile.
The texture is slightly sticky with moderate carbonation.
I like it. dnbthompson (41) - Bend, Oregon, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Poured from a 22 oz bottle as a very dark orange amber with a big frothy dark cream head. Malty but not as much as I expected. Even a slight almost whiskey aroma. Easy drinking especially well chilled. I was less impressed as the product warmed in the glass. However, a very affordable seasonal beer that I would buy again.

Its a decent enough beer, but not a scot. Reminds me more of a home brewed oktoberfest.

Bomber from Malt & Vine as Portland Noble Scot. Pours deep dark orange (strong backlight) with a beige head. Light smoke aroma with some roasty malt. Med + body. Flavor is malty with some smoke. Almost peat. Not thinking this is subtle smoke. Not Paradox either, though. It’s definitely not dry, but it’s not yucky sweet either. Pretty good drink.
