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.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Pours a reddish orange, with a tannish head. Rather fruity aroma. Very fruity sourish flavor, with a big malt backbone. Fruity finish.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 12, 2004
Old good Jock. Beautiful chestnut/copper colour with an OK head. Aroma of grapes, cherries and dark malts. Rich winey and fruity flavours. Very respectable Scottish ale.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Pours nicely from the bottle. Tastes like a tea sweetened with Sweet-N-Low. Not bad, but not as good as other Scottish offerings.

madsberg (11405) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2004
Bottled; Clear dark amber coloured. Huge off white lasting head. Sweet and malty aroma with a light cocoa note. Flaovur is light spicy, malty, sweet and has some vague hops notes. Is rather full in the mouthfeel. Is dry and light sweet in the end. Has a vague bitterness.

Dark copper in color, a little bit on the heavy side. Malty fruity nose. We can finally get it in Georgia no more late night runs to the Tennessee border

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Wow. Thanks to the manager of The Old Toad for this one. I guess they found this one somewhere and called it "cellared" for 5 years. I’m not complaining. Aroma: amazing, very complex, with notes of apricots, wine, sour grapes, cherry. Flavor: Lots of flavors here, speaks to being aged for 5 years, very complex, sweet malt, sugary fruit, smokey scotish ale. I was damn impressed.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2004
Large frothy head, rapidly diminishing to a nice sheet of lace. Clear reddish amber in colour. Nose is lightly malted with a bit of fruityness (cherries?). Flavour is malty, slightly acidic with dried fruits and some subtile anise really comming through in the aftertaste. Alcohol is nearly absent except in the finish. I would have expected more malt from the Scottish, regardless, quite a good drinking ale especially with this abv.

Braudog (6377) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAR 8, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2007 Dark red and quietly active with a giant head. The aroma is malty and cherry-toned. Likewise, the flavor is sweet and fruity, accompanied by a nice smooth body. Nice.
