COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stilbeschreibung: Scotch Ale ist ein dunkles, ursprünglich aus Schottland stammendes Ale. Es ist ein obergäriges Bier, für dessen Herstellung nur gut gelöste Malze verwendet werden. Der Alkoholgehalt kann zwischen 3 und 10 Prozent variieren. Besonderheiten: Clan wird mit einem speziellen Maischverfahren gebraut, das ein leicht süßliches, malziges und carameliges Aroma erzeugt, das durch den Hopfen perfekt unterstützt wird. Die Bitternote ist als dezent zu beschreiben. Für Clan wird zu 100 Prozent englischer Aromahopfen der Sorte Fuggle verwendet. Verkostungsnotiz: Umbra, trüb, mit starker Schaumbildung. Duftet malzig, caramelig, mit einer Spur gebräunten Zuckers, erinnert an Kandis. Im Geschmack dominiert eine fast tropische Frucht mit getrockneter Mango. Eine sanfte, aber intensive Bitterkeit harmonisiert den dezent süßen Eindruck, sie wirkt auch strukturierend, macht im Finish Druck und trägt den langen Nachgeschmack.

Una buona scotch ale. Gusto dolce, con note di caramello e sfumature fruttate, finale lievemente amaro con una punta di acidità.

MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle, 6.4%. The aroma seems salty at first, then turns a bit fruity, but not much. Cloudy dark brown colour. Good big stable light brown head. The flavour is yeasty with some liquorice. Not as sweet and boozy as I expected - unfortunately. Has a faint sourish touch in the finish. A bit unclean, but OK, I guess.

Bamsen78 (2409) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle to celebrate my 1st anniversary of joining RB. Pours cloudy dark copper brown with abundant and stable beige head. Clear aroma of caramel malt, fruit and alcohol. Sweet flavour of caramel malt with fruity notes and some bitter touches. Warming alcohol presence. Sweet-sourish finish. Good but not top quality.

KnutAlbert (5757) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle in Munich. Very dark gold. Spices, malt and alcohol nose, like the portugese Liclor Beirao, lovely anise aroma. Sweet, malty, cordial-like. Sweet, of course, but not sticky.

ferit (111) - Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - APR 28, 2013
+ schuim snel weg. Jammer. Schuim kleur ligt rood. Bier donker rood en zeertroebel wat kan duiden op een pure sterke smaak. + geur is lekker. Niet heel erg sterk. Fruitig en kruidig. - 1st smaak - fruitig. 2de smaak - een milde smsak die 1 en 3 verbinden. 3desmaak - bitter en kruiden. Ik had er iets meer van verwacht maar dat is bij alle bieren die braufactum aanbied.

larsga (5962) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2012
Medium tan head. Hazy opaque black body goes deep dark brown at edges. Last bit added visible pale goop to the mix. Roasty raisiny aroma with caramelized sugar and fruit notes. Dry-sweet roasty earthy taste with burnt fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish peppery spicy earthy aftertaste with herbal fruity notes. Really unusual, but not entirely successful. (0.33l bottle, from Das Meisterstück, Berlin.)
