COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Three Sisters Scottish Ale (4.2% abv) is a dark, fruity, refreshing ale that proves a perennial favourite, and is named after the dramatic range of mountains in Glencoe.
Chocolate Malt helps to give this beer its very attractive dark ruby colour, as well as contributing to some of the toasty and liquorice flavours in the beer.
However, a very large charge of whole-flower hops balances the dark malt character with an abundance of hop fruit flavours. These include dried and fresh fruit flavours as well as some more citrus tones not normally found in such a dark beer.
There’s enough ‘going on’ in Three Sisters to keep even the most demanding real ale aficionado happy, whilst the very approachable fruit makes this a popular drink across the board.

mike_77 (3789) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2015
Aroma is a bit fruity and malty. Flavour has some light toastiness to it. A fairly dry and bitter finish. Nice balance but not especially memorable.

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
0.5l bottle. Looks really good this with a fine big frothy lasting light beige head on top of a crystal clear deep amber almost bronze looking beer. It’s light caramellish on the nose with clear tones of candied sugars. Some fruitiness also going on here, but the candied sugar dominates. Quite pleasant non extreme nose. Yeah, it tastes quite alright this. Easy to drink, that’s for sure. It’s not extreme in any directions, not that I was expecting it to be of course but it has lots of flavor. Both caramel and again, that candied sugar comes to mind. It’s not roasted but it has a little roasted element as well. Grass and nuts before it ends with traces of chocolate wrapper and crystal malts. Yeah, it’s not bad at all this. 11.04.2014

djoeye (2226) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2014
Clear copper amber body, off white head, lacing fields. Aroma; fruity hops, carefully roasted malts, notes of cocoa and caramel, leaves and notes of strawberry. Taste; malts, fruity juicy hops, caramel, leaves, diluted blackcurrants, peels of berries or apples. Bread, malts and some hops in finish. Slightly flourish on palate, soft enough carbonation, light body. Overall okay. [50cl brown bottle, abv4.2%, BB Apr.2015, B@K skanssi Turku]
