COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cold Smoke Scotch Ale earned a silver medal in 2002 and a gold medal in the 2007 NABA brewfest. Formulated with Montana grown 2-row barley, northwest Goldings hops, and lotsa love, this hearty ale drinks very smooth. Not bitter at all and not too sweet either. Novice beer drinkers have been known to take a taste and then say, “WOW! That’s not what I expected… that’s GOOD!” A hint of roasted barley lends a slight coffee-like smoky finish. It packs a 6.5% abv punch. Perfect after a day of rippin’ lines on area or your favorite back country getaway. Available in 16 oz aluminum cans. 6.5 % abv (alcohol by volume); 11 IBUs (International Bittering Units)

Gotta go against the grain on this one. This garnett/ tawny brown ale was the surprise of the night. Malty and rich, with some caramel and fruitiness and light smoke, chocolate and nut. Though they nailed the style, and drinks bigger than 6.5%. I’d buy this often if I could."
