COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mainly available filtered in bottles, though part of the production goes unfiltered into cask.
The traditional brewing process used in the production of Traquair House Ale consists of the following; 1. Traditional infusion mashing process. The wort is then drawn off and boiled during which process the hops are added. 2. The wort is now cooled and pitched with top fermenting yeast under controlled temperature. It is then fermented in oak over a period of seven days. The beer is then transferred into cold storage tanks or barrels and matured over a period of weeks. After maturation the beer is filtered prior to packing.

Gorgosh (395) - - DEC 4, 2015
Redan på William Wallaces tid hade skottarna förstånd att sätta sig upp mot överhögheter och lorder som försökte få det strävsamma folket att foga sig. Man visste även att ett stop öl passade sig i stort sett när som helst oavsett tid på dygnet och dag i veckan, och traditionsenliga som skottarna är har inte den vanan ändrats nämnvärt. I ljuset av det känns något så här attitydslöst och fogligt som ett skottskt misslyckande. Ett öl som dansar efter den vanliga väntade (säck)pipan är inget som kommer att få fäste i historieböckerna. Drucket i dag, glömt i morgon, känns inte som en nordbrittisk attityd.

One2remeber (237) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Bottle, best before June 2018. Metallic, old English malt character, could easily mistake malt profile as a doppelbock (optimator). Light brown malt with a chewy, nutty flavor. Low Co2. Nuttiness of boiled peanuts.

AgentAle (1315) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 16, 2015
Aroma is sweet malts, candy sugar and sweet cask oak. Taste is sweet malts and dark fruits with slight bitterness that dissipates. Smooth consideringvthe abv though. The full body does sadly taper off. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains somewhat poorly.
