The Première Communion is the little sister of and an introduction to the Scotch Ale. With less alcohol and somewhat thinner than a Scotch Ale, it nevertheless has the same flavours, but in lesser intensity.

Red-orange pour with a one finger frothy white head. Aroma holds smokiness, along with light citrus and lemon- subtle overall. Flavor is very bready, with yeast, wheat, and other subtle malt notes. Palate is decent for a lighter style. Well crafted brew.

Dark amber pour with 1/2 a finger head. Smoke and citrus lemon with bits of orange dominate the aroma. Flavor is biscuity malt with caramel and an excellent citrus character. Medium body with bone dy finish. Interesting, but not outstanding.

On tap at DDC. A funny name for a Scottish Ale! Dark brown, creamy white head, looks good. Some caramel malt in aroma. Malty taste, no alcohol, slightly bitter, creamy body - standard stuff that is well done but unremarkable.

On tap @ the Brewpub. Aroma of candied malt, caramel, ruby, sporting a small toffee tam. Flavour is mild malt, caramel and toffee. Light bodied, very well balanced, creamy smooth, mildly sweet. Great!

Tap at the brewpub. Pours a deep amber with a nice beige head. Aroma is a bit buttery, diacetyl, yeasty, nice caramel malt aroma, nutty and hints of roast and earth. Flavor is sweet smooth, modest buttery character, caramel malts, toasty, nutty, fruity- figs, raisin, etc- turns dry toasty, and nutty in the end with hints of herbs and earth. Pretty nice.

Dark brown color, with a beige head, but falls quickly, toasty, roasty malt nose, with some caramelized dried fruit notes of fig, but mostly raisin, and a good toffee aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a toasty, grainy, raw malt character, with some earthy biscuity malt, roasty accents, with a good background of caramel and toffee, and a faint flowery hop leafiness, leading towards a malty, roasty, bitterness finish.

In short: A richly malted earthy original Scottish Ale.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy dark ruby body with a medium beige head
In long: Interesting malt bill with a graham cookies and rye bread flavour. Some dried fruits in caramel. Even a little side of fruit salad with a light cherry sourness. I particularly enjoyed the earthy notes, birch trees and tree bark flavours. It was my second First Communion and I really enjoyed both of them. This last one was a really satisfying pint of beer and the first one was even more fun with the farts noises on the wooden church bench.
