COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Scotch-style ale, named from Norse mythology, combines the heritage and tartan of our brew team. The roasted barley and chocolate malt lend a bold flavor to this delicious dark beer. Its increased hop level is a modest departure from a true Scotch-style ale. We hope you agree this is a beer worthy of the name Tasgall, "Cauldron of the Gods."

22 fl oz bottle, thanks to thewolf. Pours dark brown with a reddish hue and a tan head. Fruity hops and light liqourice note in the aroma. Flavour starts sweet and soon shows a solid caramel malt base before the hops kick in and give a light spiced liqourice fruity flavour. Medium malty sweet and light hoppy finish with a medium dryness.

A deep red beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is very hoppy combined with strong notes of caramel: The flavor is very sweet, but at the same time extremely dry, with an end that contains light woody notes. A nice powerful Scotch Ale.

Pours deep red mahogany with a small deep beige-yellow head. Super lacing. Okay duration. Aroma is vinious, lots of caramel and a good dose of fruity hops. Great, creamy mouthfeel. Sweet flavour, lots of caramel, toffee, lightly roasted, a touch (and just the right touch) of peity smoke. Great brew!
