Dobre i tresciwe a za tym goryczkowe piwo z krzepka wielka piana i zlotym kolorze. Wszystko ladnie wyglada, a smak takze dobry z pomarancza w tle i inne cytrusy kilka zroznicowanych chmieli. Wytrawny finisz. Piwo przyjemne w piciu i nie meczy.

Great Golden Ale, from the north of Scotland , deep golden color, together with a compact white head, fresh fruity noise, well balanced beer with some great citrus notes.
I have to say one of my favorite summer ales, we’ve also had it in 5 litre party cask very interesting.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2012 Ormai l’amaro tende a catturare molti proseliti. Purtroppo è anche vero che l’amaro nasconde quegl’altri sapori tradizionali della birra classica. Con l’Ossian non accade. Per fortuna, aggiungerei. Corpo fruttato con leggero aroma aranciato e un qualcosa di frutta secca. L’amaro c’è ma non impedisce la fuoriscita di altri aromi. Un plauso a questo birrificio in effetti. E un ringraziamento anche all’Ossian bardo del medioevo che ha dato il nome a questa birra.

Brown Bottle, Co-op, Aberdeen city. Pours pale yellow with a medium head subsiding slowly. Scent is nutty and earth with muted citrus notes. Full and sweet. Taste is supremely malty with grainy aftertaste. Palette fresh and dense - great for sipping.

Gold ale. Strong hop aroma; the aroma suggests some North American barley wines, such as Ipswich 1084...
Medium bodied, bitter, aromatic. The palate too is dominated by the hop character, and enough persistent.

Toasty hops, nice golden color (the label doesn’t lie) with a soft nice head. Taste stays for quite a time, a really good beer.

Think the Scotish brewers who bought us this very pleasant pale ale might be concerned at it being described as an english pale ale.
A winner of several awards including the champion beer of Scotland in 2001 this is a full bodied amber ale with an underlying fruitiness. Quite full bodied and with more depth than you would normally expect in a 4.1 per center. Highly recommended.

Pours a watery head with large bubbles and similar lacing. Aroma is quite malty but also includes some smoky orange elements. Complex heather and pine notes to the flavor, and just the right touch of roasted peat to distinguish this as a classy Scottish brew. The finish loses the complex elements and is fundamental pleasant hops-bitter with a grainy tint. Somewhat thin and runny body but has enough carbonation. Rather pricy but I would highly recommend for special occasions.
