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

yngwie (15611) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2010
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a clear, amber body topped by a creamy, dense off-white to beige head leaving lacings. A light peaty smoke aroma gives a little sourish touch, there’s herbal notes and some chocolate and roasted malts too. It’s sweet in the mouth yet dry, full-bodied yet watery, all in a strange way. There’s raisins, dark sugar, some chocolate and a slight roasted flavor too. Sweet finish with some roasted malts. A strange beer, too sourish and a bit boring, but quite drinkable and decent. 100115
