Underneath Lucan sits a large, ancient granite aquifer which delivers classic brewing water for a malty ale. At Brau Bros, we fill in the remaining ingredients to brew Bancreagie Peated Scotch Ale. Named for the light-colored rock itself, Bancreagie relies on a complex and deep malt bill, featuring authentic peat-smoked malt. A traditional Scottish yeast is pitched and ferments a sweet, smoky and malty ale.

Decent enough smoky beer. Reddish brown. Definitely smoky and malty aroma. Taste brings in the peat characteristics…but decent subtle. Some caramel sweetness. Medium bodied. Not bad.

The smoky, earthy flavor of the peated grains shows up in the aroma and the flavor. It gives the beer a unique flavor. Dark, honey-colored beer. Decent head. It’s a very smooth, flavorful, and enjoyable beer. It’s not overly strong tasting, so you could drink more than one without getting tired of it. I would strongly consider buying it again soon. I would certainly order one if it was on tap.

Bottle. No head at all, amber. Seems thin, but mild flavor is refreshing. The smokiness is subtle, but still present. More malty than yeasty, but well-balanced all around. Very comfortable and pleasant!
