COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hope and King is a full-body brew and is rich in malt complexity. Brewed with both English and American barley and many, many specialty malts this deeply colored ale has hints of roasted chocolate, caramel and raisins with very little hop presence. Our interpretation of the classic ale that originated in Glasgow, Scotland.

chinchill (4201) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 17, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. Served in a pint glass. Good looking red-amber body topped by a decent head. This is a solid mainstream Scotch Ale that is at least on par with the typical version found in Scotland.

GreatDane1632 (1168) - North Dakota, USA - JAN 29, 2015
On tap at the Brewery/Brewpub -- I thought this beer had the potential makings of a great Scotch. Although slightly light, I thought it needed more body.

That1Guy (2192) - Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Part of a flight at the taproom. Clear reddish brown pour. Nice balance of roast and sweetness with a slight hint of smoke. Not usually a Scotch ale kinda guy, but I dug this one.

On tap at Town Hall. Pours a clear brown with hues of reddish orange when backlit. Aroma is caramel, malt and dark fruit. Flavor is full and sweet: malt and grain, sweet caramel, dark fruit complexity. Medium bodied, frothy carbonation makes for a creamy mouthfeel.

Ericular (953) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Pours dark reddish brown. Aroma is roasted malts, tea, peat. Taste is malty, staying sweet and containing none of the expected dry, roasty bitterness the aroma led me to believe. Short finish & aftertaste.
