COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Every year we offer a new beer to celebrate the holidays. This year we have brewed a Scotch Ale. Scotch and Scottish Ales are generally malt centered beers with Scotch Ales being the stronger cousins of the much milder Scottish Ales. To further confuse the matter, the strongest of the Scotch Ales, those reaching into Barleywine territory, are often referred to as Wee Heavy. Our Holiday Scotch Ale is in the middle group of Scotch Ales We crafted this special brew primarily out of pale ale and crystal malts with roasted barley and flaked barley for extra color and texture. A small (<1.5%) quantity of peat smoked malt was added to lend a hint of the smoky complexity often found in American renditions of this classic style. The aroma hops are a mild blend of English Fuggle and Golding hops.
