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.

brokensail (15609) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 24, 2011
A: The pour is dark amber in color with a smallish khaki colored head. S: A really nice nose on this one. Sweet caramel and toffee all the way through with a hint of vanilla. Toasted bread and molasses give an extra bit of maltiness. A rather simple aroma, but quite good. T: There is a hint of booze, but otherwise it’s a rather nice combination caramel and toffee. Some more of the bread and toast character, but it is a touch watery at times. Maybe some brown sugar. M: Medium in body with a low to medium level of carbonation. O: Overall pretty nice. A bit simple to me, but I liked what it had to offer.
