COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Theydon_Bois (12736) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Can during RBWG hotel lobby tasting night 1, 19/02/15 think I brought this one ? Clear amber with a decent beige covering. Nose is apple orchard, musty fruit tones, nutty, toffee. Taste comprises biscuit, apple pie, bitter orange, brown sugar. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet licks in the close. Bit of a mess.

ordybill (665) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a very sweet malt and vanilla aroma. Appearance- This beer is a light brown color with a small tan colored head. Taste- Has a mellow malt flavor with a mix of vanilla, i did not care for the aftertaste. Palate- A heavy bodied beer with mild carbonation and an oily texture. Overall- I have not jumped on the "Scotch Ale" bandwagon yet. I have tried several and none of them have blown me away yet. I will try this beer again once I have sampled more of this style.

KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pours a medium caramel brown with a pillowy off white head and has notes of sweet toasted malts, caramel and a light herbal hop. It has a lightly malty sweet carmel taste with a small dark fruit presence at first, then a decent bitterness slips in to balances it out... https://www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Tmoney99 (11910) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Can. Poured clear brown color with an average to large tan frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy and toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew.

French Broad Wee-Heavy-Er Scotch Style Ale has a thin, beige head, a red-brown, somewhat bubbly appearance, some ascending bubbles, and minor lacing left behind. The aroma is of an odd sweet-sour, some peat, a touch of smoke, caramel candy, and brown bread crust. Taste is of the same strange sweet & sour sauce, moderate bitterness, lemon, lime, and bread. Mouthfeel is on the light side, and French Broad Wee-Heavy-Er finishes mostly dry and not unlike Bud Light Lime, in some respects. RJT

djd07 (6056) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Can. Pours a clear brown with no head. The aroma is scotch and peat. Thin mouth with strong scotch, light smoke, a bit watery.

tnkw01 (1337) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Can. Just an average Scotch Ale. Amber color with not much head. Aroma is a malty, caramel, dried fruit smell. The taste is where it falls flat. The flavor starts off fine. Caramel and such. The after-taste is terrible. Chemical-bitter taste.
