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.

50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 15.04.2014
Aroma is unusual for a bitter. It has malty feeling, resiny tones and some apricot – feels actually like a Belgian blonde. Perhaps also hints of cardboard in the background. Flavour has some apricot, some berries, distant resiny tones and some cardboard. Finishes with distant grassy tones. Not very English and not very bitter.

MrJamesMcEwan (54) - SCOTLAND - FEB 15, 2014
"Gently roasted barley malt gives a deep ruby colour and delicate toasted flavour. This Scottish style 80/- ale has a light fruitiness with a crisp aftertaste". Mild toasted aroma, dark brown colour, wet wood & toast taste, very fizzy palate.
