COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Viborg Scottish Ale is true to the style with it’s slightly smoked malty caramel flavor and a buttery after taste that is especially pronounced because it’s brewed using an open fire in the old Scottish tradition. Because of the 7,6% alcohol it’s classified as a Wee heavy. For food Scottish Ale is nice with fish. Top fermented and cellared in 6 weeks.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2013
Bottled (backlog, bought during my cartrip to Jylland). Nutbrown colour with some amber hints, mediumsized creamy off-white head. Aroma is toffee, some leathery notes along with mild toasted things. Flavour has a similar base, but also there’s some ripe fruits, mild toffee, toasted nuts and a bit resiny notes. Alcohol is well hidden.

ThirstyBird (1567) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2012
Thanks for the bottle Rainer! Pours an overly foamy brown with reddish highlights with loose big tanish head. Smell is sweet caramel malt, burnt malt, earth. Taste is tart, some fruit along with the caramel malt sweetness, earthiness with dry finish. Body is medium average carbonation. Overall this beer just kind of sits there...nothing great nothing horrible. Note - it was a gusher and made a bit of a mess.
