COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle; Pasteurised.
The soldiers of the Highland and Lowland regiments of Scotland are known as "The Jocks". This classic Scottish Strong Ale with its strong warming flavours of malt and hops, is a fitting tribute to these powerful fighting men. A drink to be savoured at room temperature.
Major ingredients are:-
Optic Pale Ale Malt, Roast Barley. Hops used are English grown Challenger, Fuggles and First Gold.

Ruby color and tan head. Aroma reminds of whiskey and some fruit and woody tones. Flavor was good. Full and satisfying.

mribm (458) - Ocala, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2003
500 ml. bottle. Pours a deep copper brown color with a medium sized light tan head which quickly dissipated. The nose was of malt and caramel and a slight whiskey aroma. The flavor was primarily rich and malty with malts lingering in the finish. This is a good Scottish Ale.

Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - DEC 2, 2003
An excellent Scottish ale, Old Jock displays a complexity of maltiness in both aroma and flavor. So many different malt aspects make this a pleasure to drink.

Bov (10485) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 25, 2003
bright ruby-brown colour, few foam, cherry and malty nose, full-bodied, slightly oily with an acidic touch, nice late bitterness in a long fruity and malty finish - fresh, robust and balanced

Shag (2684) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Aroma is quite strong and very pleasant. Brownish appearance with a moderate head. Flavor has a little alcohol showing through with nuts and grapes being the primary flavors. Very nice beer and I really didn't enjoy Scottish Ales at first but they are starting to grow on me.

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - SEP 20, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2004 Sweet and fruity (plums, grapes, or something like that...heck, I don't know!) aroma and taste with bitter finish.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2003
I think I like the Black Douglas better as it is a bit darker and richer. This was more of a lighter amber ale take on the style. A little bit lighter and softer, with some different flavors coming through, lighter fruits and more hops but still very tasty.

Ungstrup (30476) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2003
A red beer with a fine head. Both the nose and the flavor is sweet and malty - a very nice beer.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 2, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2003 This is a superb old Scottish ale. The complexity of the flavor is the highlight of the drink. Tangy and berryish, but not sweet. Kind of like berries that aren't yet ripe. Smells like iron, and nuts. Awesome.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - AUG 31, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2003 Poured almost opaque amber hue with reddish tint when held to light. Thick, quickly disapating head. Nice lacing. Aroma of smoky malt. Nice warmth and smoothness on the palate with a lingering mild sweetness. Smooth finish. Great brew. Very impressed.
