Named for a medieval Scottish sword, Claymore Scotch ale is a tribute to the legendary "Wee Heavy" beers of Scotland. A malty, deep-ruby-hued ale, it features a generous amount of caramel sweetness, a reserved hop profile and a subtle warming character, at 7.7% alcohol by volume. Claymore will be available in six-packs and on draft through mid-April.

On tap at POUR on Center (6/14/15). Malty and alcoholic vapor, musky and a little damp. Dark coppery-brown clear with thin head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Nice sweet alcoholic flavor, malty. Earthy light bitter finish with sweet-bitter after.

Had on tape at Pizzeria Pezzo in White Bear Lake, MN. Very solid Scotch ale - normally would have skipped this, but glad I tried it. Would look for it again

craftbeersweden (530) - SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2016
Clear, dark mahogny colored beer with a thin, beige, head. No lacing on the glass.

Nose: This smell! Well, its not a nice one... Like an old worn shoe. Nuts, coffee grain, leather, milk and roasted malt. Im getting more and better nose as the beer warms up. Maybe I shold have this beer warmer?
Taste: Roasted malt, Caramel, dark syrup, vanilla, brown sugar and molasses. I must say I liked the taste a lot more than the nose!
Mouthfeel: Medium body. Light, fizzy, carbonation. Sweet ending.

Finn (6091) - Troms, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2016
Fra fat p Nydalen Bryggeri og Spiseri i hyggelig selskap av Halvor. Svart. Lavt, lett farget skum. Lett whiskyaroma. Smaken det samme. Blir bare en whisky-light hele veien. Svakt syrlig etter hvert med en trr avslutning

coachd (493) - Missouri, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Malty peaty scent with an unflattering sour quality to it. Very nice looking reddish brown color with a small cream colored cap of foam. The taste is malty as well with tons of caramel and a balancing hop bite at the end. Slight booze in the aftertaste. So-so palate, overall solid not spectacular.
