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.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2002
Dark reddish tan. Thin head. Smells of bready malt, with some yeastiness. Tastes much the same. This brewery doesn’t seem to like hops much, although neither does the rest of Scotland; perhaps this is a Scottish Nationalist reaction to IPA... Nice interpretation of the style, anyway, quite full-bodied with a long, sweet finish.

PhillyBeer2112 (2517) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2002
Rich smoky aroma. Sweet caramel malt and BBQed meats in the nose as well. Something else is in there too, something sweet, like maybe chocolate-covered cherries. Dark red-brown, large creamy stiff head. Good retention. Rich dark malt flavor, light smokiness, earthy hops under all of it. A little chocolate. Extra smooth. Nice balance. Thick sheets of lace.

RichardGretton (4227) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2002
The beer has a slightly sour aroma, and its flavour is a mixture of sultanas and malt. A more subtle scottish ale compared to the majority of beers brewed in the country. Overall very palatable.

Wonderful, dark, malty, Scotch Ale. One of the best Scotch Ales that I’ve had.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2002
Nice deep red color, but a wierd malty/sweet aroma that I couldn’t quite place. Nice fruity tones with a pleasant caramel touch. Well worth trying, but very expensive, at least in the US.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2002
Caramel aroma, ruby colour, fluffy toffee head. Caramel sweetnass, slight bitterness. Rich texture, buttery. A fine Scottish Ale.

MMM...Beer (385) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 5, 2002
I have to admit, when I first inhaled it aroma, I was a little sketchy of this beer. However, after the first few sips I decided I really like it. Not something that I’d buy real often, but its fruity, sweet malts really play well on the palate and help make an enjoyable beer.

Hugerat (452) - somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 30, 2002
One of the best scottish ales I’ve tried, though I’m not really into the style. Pours a big creamy head with lots of lace. Sweet malt flavor with a touch of fruitiness.
