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.

Gorgeous dark red colour. Aroma is ’boozey’ rich, very nice. Gorgeous lacing. Lovely ale for the winter months. Caramel, molasses, hay, resin, alcohol, vanilla. A strong ale, that’s what it taste like.

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.

This beer introduces itself with a sour prune smell that has a hint of banana lingering in the background. It is Appalachian brown in color and has a small white head that dissolves rather quickly. This beer is thin and watery and only produces a mildly bitter yeasty taste after it is swallowed. (

CEZ (412) - Milano, ITALY - APR 29, 2004
Brown-reddish body, looks like caramel. Nice head, off-white, mostly lasting. Strong and attractive aroma of coffee, fruit, hazelnut, with some woody notes. Also some liquor-like alcohol in the nose, not unpleasantly. Complex taste. Caramel sweetness together with warm, dark, dry, earthy flavours. Very smooth and balanced, medium bodied. Drinkable for its 7,2% ABV. I loved it.

Dark brown, small head. Aroma from red wine, syrup and almond. Flavor is vinous, fruity, too much alcohol coming through.

I really like the color of this beer. It’s a nice pretty almost red color. The smell seemed oaky... or something. It seemed like it was 50 years old or something. It tasted like it too. It tastes like a deep old beer. With an alcoholic aftertaste. Overall, I liked this beer as it has a drinkable quality, nice good flavor.

Copper colored. Toffee and caramel aromas, ripe fruits. Taste is caramel sweet, fruity, never too sweet. Dry finish with some wood.
