COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It offers a finely wooded nose hinting at hazelnut, and is therefore distinct from traditional British scotches. It has a more rounded taste letting a discreetly full-bodied bitterness come to the fore, and will naturally seduce you.
Ingredients: Water, pale ale malt, caramel malt, aromatic malt, sugar, yeast, Kent hop, hallertau hop.

I’ve very much enjoyed ’scotch’ for a long time. I was first introduced to it by Michael Jackson in his TV series, when he asks for a ’scotch at the end of a meal. Like a good Scottish ale with a Belgian twist, complimenting both but sitting as neither in the absolute. This a beautiful rich full flavoured beer, perhaps a little sweet for some, but perfect for others. Perfect to enjoy after a meal!

Pours a deep bet with a tan head which dissipates quickly. The aroma is a subtle malt and caramel with the taste follows. Malty and caramel. The palette lingers with the richness of malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbruner (2577) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Pours a deep brown from the bottle with thin ring of tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and smoke, hint of dark fruit esters. Taste follows, big and sweet with nice earthy smoke accents. Solid beer, good balance, alcohol well hidden, light carbonation, this one was a bit oxidized, but no idea on the age.
