A traditional amber, complex, sweet, malty ale, with a touch of peat in the finish, which is characteristically lightly hopped. Brewed from a blend of English malts and a single pitching of Kent Goldings, this beer is fermented at a lower temperature to suppress formation of esters, reinforcing the beers complex malt flavour profile.

Brewed in honour of the Jameson clan of tea, coffee & spice merchants, who settled in Victoria in 1889, this beer is a classic Scottish Ale, demonstrating a complex malty body, lightly hopped with a touch of peat on the finish.

mcberko (16956) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016
On tap at Spinnakers, pours a hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out light whiskey and toasted bready malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with toasted bready malt and a pronounced whiskey note. Not a big fan of this style, but its done well and is more flavourful than usual.

On tap @ Spinnakers. Clear amber pour with an off-white head. Sweet bread, caramel, and raisin on the nose. Sort of a maraschino/grenadine nose. Slight fruity acidity. Theres a decent fruit and earthy hop note to the flavor. Otherwise, a lot of toast, caramel, and bread. Sweet cherry candies and syrup.

vadie (1256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
Cuivre ou mme marron foncer avec une petite mousse marron. Larme du caramel, malt et scotch. Le got est dabord du caramel puis du scotch avec une finition doucement amer. Cest clairement un scotch, mais pas trop forte pour le style.

Hint of whiskey and smoke; grainy with a brown sugar sweetness. Medium-bodied, golden-brown with thin white head. Rich and hearty mouthfeel. The bottle I had was good, but I remember it tasting much better on tap (like most beers).
