Danish: en øl der har taget navn efter den skotske lovløse ridder Sir William Wallace. Undernavnet ”80 skilling ale” er en ældre betegnelse for styrken, hvor man havde 60, 70 og 80 skilling, og indikere hermed at det er den stærkeste type. Dog ikke særlig stærk efter dansk målestok... William Wallace har en meget tydelig maltaroma og en kun ganske let humlebitterhed. En svag karakter af røg kan anes i eftersmagen.

English: William Wallace is named after the Scottish lawless knight, Sir William Wallace. William Wallace in 1297 headed the Scottish rebellion against the English for independance. The subname "80 Skilling" is an older notation for the strength, where 60, 70 and 80 shilling were used, indicating that this is the strongest. In Danish terms this isn’t a very strong beer though. William Wallace has a distinct maltaroma, and a very light hopsbitterness. A light note of smoke can be found in the after-taste.

jookos (3128) - FINLAND - MAY 17, 2014
Tap @ brewpub. Amber slight hazelnutty colour. Dark loafy malts with a bit of nuttyness on nose. Lightish body, slight watery. Soft though and fresh. I would have liked more of a sweet caramel flavour for it to be a good scottish ale.

StoutHead (804) - DENMARK - MAY 10, 2014
On tap at brewpub. Pours a dark amber color with a one-finger tan head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste of malt, caramel, light fruits, spices and for some reason - a bit of oak. Good, but mostly just pretty average in every way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

daje (2611) - NORWAY - OCT 11, 2013
On tap at Brewpub København, july 17th 2013. Muddy dark ruby body, no head. Aroma of ashes and cooked vegetables. Sugary banana taste wth more veggies, sour hoppy finish with buttery aftertaste. Clearly something wrong with this, though the guy at the bar claimed it was perfectly fine and was clearly insulted when I brought the issues up.
