Full Malted Jacket is our take on a classic "wee heavy" Scotch Ale. Itís brewed with a base of Golden Promise malt, an heirloom variety from Scotland. Notable additions of light and dark British caramel malts with a smidgen of chocolate malt help add flavors of rich toffee. Full Malted Jacket endures an extended three hour boil to add a unique richness to this lusciously malty brew. Itís hopped just enough with British Goldings hops from East Kent to balance things out.

Bottle. Pours hazy reddish brown with a tiny off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is light, with dark sugars, malt, biscuit, nutty. Light sweet, minimal bitterness, but a bit metallic and some zesty citrus. Medium body, low carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Interesting to be sure.

On tap at Beachwood it has a deep amber color with a small head. Aroma has some toffee and roasted fruits. Taste is smooth with more sweetness like caramel, toffee and maple syrup. Good beer.

Bottles shared at Torst and courtesy of Ben at Paulís housewarming tasting 2013. Pours a deep, reddish amber body with thin white lacing. Aroma is sweet sugary malts, light maple and toffee. Mouthfeel is medium with the sweet, caramel malt character dominating everything (intentionally I suppose); additional flavors of toffee, caramel candies, light resin, molasses and maple.

Wax sealed bottle from Bine and Vine: Poured a deep and dark amber hue that had transparency of mahogany while a soft creamy thin head developed on top which actually reminded me of Guinness Draught. Aroma is thick and heavy with toffee caramel like malts but in general is a subtle and tame olfaction. The taste is sweet with sugary sweet malts that are chewy in flavor of toffee and caramel that stays true to the Scottish-style ale. One clever name and cool design on the label which is another reminder that Beachwood stands out from the rest of the breweries coming out of Southern Cali.
