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.

Dark auburn color, frothy white head. Nice aroma; faint chocolate malty notes, tinny. Slightly tinny tastes, sweet malty body and a slightly tart palate. Tastes kind of old, but hasn’t reached the best before yet. hmmm. Think this one might be overrated.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2005 Dark redbrown with thin white head. Fruity aroma with notes of sweet apples, spices, caramel and butter. Smooth with burnt notes. Spicy flavor with notes of syrup, bitter apples and cheese. Some acidity and low bitterness

Malty, peaty, one of the best Sctoch ales going. Worth every penny.

Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 6, 2002
This was a very mellow flavored ale. However It had a slight bitterness to it at first, but I really enjoyed the flavor and overall characteristics.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 6, 2002
Clear copper with an initially fat rocky tiny bubbled head, leaves an intricate pattern of lace. Medium heavy carbonation for a Scottish ale. Slows but remains steady. Earthy aroma, peat and toffee and light dishwashing liquid. Medium bodied (body in a Broughton brew?) with a sultry malt backbone. Toffee, port and a crisp sweetness. Finally! A sip and savor, and fully enjoy, brew from these guys. Thick caramel maltiness and dried fruit slickness remain with each sip, as does a tangy smokiness (light but evident). Body has depth and actually fills your mouth. A nice brew that I will revisit often.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2002
This is a superb Scotch ale. Not too sweet with a very rich, malty flavor. The hint of licorice is an added bonus. Let it warm and you will love it.

Sampled cask conditioned. Dark. Full bodied and buttery with low bitterness. I’m no real fan of the Broughton’s.

Aurelius (4530) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2001
Deep ruby with an incredible styrofoam head. Aroma and flavor reminded me of cranberries. Malty and toffee-ish. Very sweet, with a bit of a tart/bitter finish. Wish that I had not been sitting in a smokey bar when trying to do the notes.
