COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
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.

The_Osprey (5814) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Cask HP at The Swan Hammersmith as ’Atlas 3 Sister’s. Dark orange brown, still, just a ring of foam. Aroma is simple sugars, dark honey, Kvass. Body is smooth with low carbonation. Watery palate. Taste is also watery, light leaves, thin sugars, touch of soapy astringency, rye bread, red peanut skin. Pretty poor overall.

imdownthepub (12919) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Castle Inn, Inverness, Scotland. Bronze with off white head. Quite an earthy, peaty flavour to the malts, some fruitiness, some tartness. There is an oily note, hints of resin. Reasonable without getting exciting.
