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.

From bottle. Pours a dark brown with a one-finger white head. Aroma and taste of caramel and malts. Taste has all the qualities of a Scotch ale, caramel and lovely. Nicely sweet, but not too much. Medium full mouthfeel. Nice bitter sweet finish.

Overrated beer! Plain ale, not bad or outstanding. Just regular, not really my cup of "tee".

Bottle from Systembolaget. Malty smell with fruits and some meat broth. Similar taste with some caramel. The meat broth is slightly disturbing but besides that a nice beer.
