COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full Curl Scotch Ale is brewed in the traditional Wee Heavy Scotch strong ale style. (This is not to be confused with the lighter-bodied Scottish ale style.) All about malt, Full Curl pours dark brown with a tan head. Its medium body provides sustenance while its strength boosts courage. With a stiff mug of Full Curl under your belt, you may even have what it takes to don a kilt.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 9, 2009
2009 batch on tap @ MS. Clear brown with a medium tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, caramel and some mild peppery hops. Flavor is mostly sweet rich malt with a light amount of bitterness, which balances it out nicely. Medium body with medium carbonation and a long roasty/smokey finish. Wow has my palate changed, I remember when this came out in the mid 90’s and I thought it was really strong and intense. Still really good but almost a session beer for me now.

This scotch ale pours a deep cover color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized tan foamy head. Aroma is malty, caramel a touch bready and sweet. A medium bodied scotch ale. Malts are caramel and fruity, slightly sweet and a touch peaty. Hops are earthy and perhaps a touch floral. Mild carbonation. Nice balance. Lots of malts, a touch of peat and smoke. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Bottle sampled on 9/20/06: Pours a slightly hazy copper amber with a thin, wispy off-white head. Aroma of mildly sweet caramel malt with a hint of peat. Body starts with nice caramel sweetness with good toasty balance and some slightly earthy hops. A pretty good Scottish ale.

This is simply one of the best beers produced in the state of Alaska. Alaska produces some extremely delicious beers, so that is no small compliment.
