Originally brewed at Maclays brewery in Alloa. Subsequently contract brewed at Forth (now known as Williams Brothers) and, later, at Belhaven following Maclays exit from brewing. Recently revived at Clockwork.

Wallace I.P.A. is a premium Scottish ale which is golden amber colour with a full malty flavour and a rich hoppy finish.

I like this better than most of the other raters. It may not conform completely to the IPA style, but it is a very well-balanced brew that is a real pleasure to drink. A new favorite!

the initial taste was nice and hoppy but quickly faded. Not bad as a pale ale but a good IPA should be more robust and persistently hoppy.

Nice apple cider like color. Strong malty aroma, lots fo taste up front. not much for an IPA but good

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 10, 2002
Deep amber with a touch of cloudiness. Smallish tight bubled light cream colored head. Aroma of sweet caramel and hop blankets. Perhaps a touch watery in the body. Very well balanced with both a pale malt flavor and a mild citrus backdrop. Finish is quite quick and unassuming. A nice light drinking (almost session like) IPA.

Not an outstanding IPA. Head was brief, initial hop taste present, but quickly faded. A little thick in the stomach.

Does anyone else find it odd that the Wallace ale is an IPA instead of a scots? Nevertheless, it was a pretty good one, though not great.

Bottle 13/08/2002 Amber coloured with some alcohol and a wheat flavour. Slightly dry malt finish.
