COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich malty flavors of caramelized and toasted grains dominate this robust Scotch ale. A hint of rye adds a crisp, scotch-like, old-world beer character, reminiscent of a simpler life from centuries ago. It’s a wee-bit heavy.

Clear red - brown beer. Light bubblegum nose. Softish palate, slightly dry. Sweet malt with a wheat beer like bubblegum and banana. Finishes pretty much the same way but adding a little spice in the aftertaste. More wheat beer than wee heavy! Pretty drinkable though!

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2009
Hazy amber color. Scotch Ale? It’s just a powerful Amber Ale, with sweetish caramel and malt flavor and too much alcohol feeling.
