COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.
