The Civil Life Scottish Ale


Brewed by The Civil Life Brewing Company
St. Louis, Missouri USA
Style: Scottish Ale | Ratings: 18 | Alcohol: 5.7%
Traditional Scottish ales are malt-focused with distinct caramel-sweetness, sometimes nutty, biscuity, with subtle earthy, roasty, even peat-smoky layers. Ours is too thanks to authentic Scottish ingredients, but also hoppier than expected. We made the odd choice of American Cascade hops to add a unique citrus and black currant twist. You’re gonna love this laid-back but deceptively delicious brew.

For The Nerds:
ABV: 5.7%
Colour: mostly clear copper with lasting beige foam and lace
BJCP Style: 9C. Scottish Export 80/-
Notable Ingredients: Scottish Golden Promise Malt, small specialty malt additions, Cascade hops, UK ale yeast .
