A rich, malty Scottish style ale brewed with a splash of molasses in the boil to create a unique Caramel flavor. Small quantities of hops are used to keep the bitterness low and the aroma and finish clean and crisp. Named for our first brewmaster in Del Mar, John Garvey. Gold Medal winner at the 2008 World Beer Cup.

Frozen 16oz pour at Oggi’s Encinitas outlet, complete with floating ice. Dirty Cola colour, light tan coloured ice on top. Got malty in both the nose and taste as it defrosted, might have been OK ten degrees warmer. Scored objectively and kindly.

Dark reddish brown in color... Aroma of sweet malts, peated malts, toffee... Flavor is smooth and malty, not much balance, lots of scotch and caramel notes... Great for what it is ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
