COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Limited Release. 100% Scottish Maris Otter malt was used in the brewing. The combination of the scottish malts and slow aging process produces a unique brew as distinctive as single malt whiskey with a subtly different taste than any other beer. Look for a sweet malty taste with a backround of floral notes from english fuggle hops. To not be confused with the Scotch Ale that Saranac sells.

Nothing really special for the hype on the bottle. Decent malt taste and their is an interesting flavor from the hops, but overall this beer is pretty watery and unimpressive.

very disapointed with this beer. Faint smells of whiskey, roasted malt flavor. Another lack-luster brew from Saranac.

Watery and flavourless, even worse than most other saranacs. Their scotch ale is head and shoulders above this, and its not even that great. I would get this beer again if I were in the mood for slightly sweet water.

Yet again another good beer from Saranac

For a Scottish ale I thought it wasn’t that great. But good.

Wasn’t what I expected as a ’scottish’ ale. Rather dry, moderate sweetness. Overall, this is rather average and nondescript. Certainly not one of Saranac’s better offerings.

This is OK, nothing special - though it is not up to the standard, ever had a 90 Shilling? Maybe this is bad, now that I think about it.

It is something different. Malty, yet in a different, dryer than most beers.

’single malt’ come on; a lot of the best beers are ’single malt’. What we have here is a rather average ale with a little sweetness, a little sourness, and a little body and aroma. Carboardy notes throughout; mmmm. Below average even for this brewer.

This stuff is repulsive, maybe I had a skunky one or something
