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.

olio (6496) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2014
75 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours clear mahogany color with a huge off-white head. Sadly some cardboard on the aroma, caramel malts, faint herbal notes and toffee. Sweet ripe fruits, plums, caramel, sweet malts, some distant honey and molasses. Dry malty palate. Sweet and enjoyable but sadly feels a bit old and off.

lusikka (6523) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2014
750 ml bottle. Thanks olio. Pours a dark amber brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma of strong wet cardboard notes, plum and toffee. Flavour is rather sweet and heavy with toffee, earthiness, plums, some bread and red berries. Medium bodied. A bit harsh and unbalanced.

bartlebier (1960) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2014
75cl bottle@TriState Tasting II. Tastes like a light and powdery Dunkelbock full of earth-trodden dry autumn leaves, slight peat, with virtually no taste evolution as it warms and a bit of an airy/hollow core where the yeast profile should be: quite soulless rendition of a Scotch ale for that hefty Braufactum price tag.

Skinnyviking (7231) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2014
Bottlle. Low fluffy white lasting head. Hazy yellow thinlooking body. Mild malt caramel toffee aroma. Mild and sour sweet flavor with choccolate and a hint of the alcohol. Low carbonation. Long sweet finish.

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