Our Wee Heavy-er Scotch Ale is based on our Wee Heavy Scotch Ale recipe, but with a little more-er alcohol. This traditional Scotch Lowland ale is one of our most popular brews. Some of you may remember the original Wee-Heavy from the days when North Carolina brewers could not brew beers containing more than 6% ABV. We would like to take a moment and thank the people of Pop-the-Cap for all their hard work. Gold Medal - 2002 World Beer Championships, Chicago

Not sure who pulled out this one. Deep amber pour with a small white head. Toffee, toast, and caramel malt aroma much the same for the flavor. I donít know another style Iím not necessarily thrilled by.

tympanic (168) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2013
First beer of Brevard Summer 2013. Bomber, Ingles supermarket. Itís brown, itís a little fizzy, but tastes a little like flat cola. The price was right. I am alone on the porch; nobody else is here yet. Itís raining. Life is perfect.

Cybercat (3316) - Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Comes out of the tap a reddish, barely translucent dark chocolate brown with a decent wheat head. Aroma has roast malt, molasses and clove notes with a hint of horehound. Flavor has malty, earthy, caramel, cloves and horehound notes of varying strengths. Firm, heavy texture has plenty of fizz. Wee heavier, way more enjoyable.

I am still uncertain as to what differentiates a Scotch Ale from regular old Brown Ale. I am sure that disqualifies my rating from being of use. Of course, I will proceed anyway. Poured just on the light side of medium brown with a very light head. Malt and notes of burnt coffee in the flavor. Mouthfeel was thin. Bomber - Ingles Supermarket - Brevard, NC

mcberko (6453) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2012
650mL bottle, pours a dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma of light brown sugar, some slight whiskey malts, and caramel malts. Flavour is fairly light, with some slightly sweet caramel malts, some light whiskey malts, and some metallic notes. Fairly light-bodied for a scotch ale, with an inoffensive flavour profile. Decent stuff, but pretty weak.

Westmeister (1754) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Draft. Pours a dark copper with a sticky off-white head. Smell is toffee notes with some butter, wood and off phenol notes. Taste is toffee, dark fruits, tangy hints. Mouthfeel is full with medium carbonation. Not memorable, but not bad.

Very smooth taste, almost no bitterness. Good color and flavor, but leaves something to be desired.

the first sip feels like you are about to have a hard cider. it then suddenly mellow what with a nice beer with some nuttiness. its palate is smooth and almost creamy.

The aroma is malty with butterscotch, yeast, fruit, and hops. The appearance is hazy amber with a large heard. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall this is decent.

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2012 From tap: Pours dark brown with frothy head. Coffee and dark malt aroma. Scotch ale taste with loads of roasted malt and coffee.
