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.

Different. Nice malt aroma but i found this to be watery and not packed with that much flavor. Kinda like a diluted scotch. Not bad but not outstanding.

A ’wet’ beer with an incredibly evident malt flavor. I could smell it before I tasted it. This beer also ends with a floral hoppy flavor. I enjoy it.

Clear, a light amber/orange. Can smell the scottish like malt even with a head cold. Minimal head and lacing. Malts are evident and tasty, light-medium bodied, maybe some floral notes detected, light hoppy finish, a tad watery but a respectable brew. Might be better if my head was clear.
