COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Good value beer for the price of $10 a six. All about the malt or course, and how it is complimented by the roasted nut and caramel with dark fruits. The sweetness is well tamed and the finish is on the dry side - a nice accomplishment for what is a bargain in this style.

Caytinator (894) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Pint on tap at brewery. Dark mahogany pour, medium adhesion, regular head, heavy syrupy aroma, sweet. Taste errs towards cloying, hardly any hop bitterness, it all comes from the strong alcohol finish. Appropriately heavy mouthfeel. Well-done but not the best EVER, though I’m admittedly partial to the style.

Pours a nice thick head and a very deep dark brown, almost black. Aroma and taste are very malty with a little caramel and alcohol. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brown with a moderate white head. Smells of dark breads, floral. Taste is sweet and bitter - bread, hint of chocolate, hint of vanilla - hint I hops. Very malt forward.
