Our interpretation of the Scottish Export style is 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.

    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 wasn't harsh or unpleasant in any way. It's just kinda ....blah.

    Scottish ales are my favorite for appearance and aroma. The taste of this one is solid and crisp. The sweetness isn't overbearing. A good smooth finish.

    Bottled. Brownish/orange colour with small beige head. Rotten fuit in aroma along with sugary hints. Sweetish sour apple, mango and malt in flavour. A bit hops in finish. Quite pleasant, even though it has the "rotten fruit" almost all the way through.

    Medium amber color, medium head. A light bodied Scottish style ale. Slightly roasted malts and slightly spicy hops. Nice mild malty flavor. Smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty and slightly sweet. Etched/Painted Beer bottle.

    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.
