Wolverine State Smoking Gunn


Brewed by Wolverine State Brewing Company
Ann Arbor, Michigan USA
Style: Smoked | Ratings: 1 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 6.3%
Scottish Lager with Peated Malt. This beer comes to us from Rick Wilson, whose Scottish heritage traces back to Clan Gunn. The base beer is noe that mimics a 90/shilling ale but the added peated malt gives it a clean, smoky aroma and the flavor of a well-made scotch. Of course in true Wolverine fashion the fact that this beer is a lager gives the beer a smooth, crisp profile, allowing us to showcase the nuances of the malt as the hearty flavor of the Maris Otter malt from the UK and the generous dose of dark crystal malts. We balance the malts with East Kent Golding and Willamette hops.
