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.

Ungstrup (29846) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2006
A hazy dark amber beer with a bubbly orange head. The aroma is dusty, malty, and grainy with a light touch of alcohol - I find the aroma boring. The flavor is acidic malty with notes of straw and fruit. I wonder where the acidity comes from - a brewing flaw? remove the acidityand make it sweeter, like I like the style, and You have a decent beer.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2006
Bottle. Unclear brown with small head (thistle shaped galss). Dark fruits, biscuits, touch of chocolate, little yeasty and winey, low bitteness, medium bodied, slightly unclean mouthfeel. An ok scottish ale that could use a clean up and some more body.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 (Bottle 50 cl) Clear, amber golden with an off-white head. Fresh and fruity nose with lightly nutty accents. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, some roasted malt notes, nuts and a lightly ashy edge. The finish is dry. More of a Brown Ale really. 150907

(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a hazy, orangey brown with a small, off-white head. Slightly tart, malty aroma. Fairly full-bodied, with roasted malts and a vague, underlying burned edge. I wonder if the underlying tartness is fully intentional. Ends rather dry. Unbalanced and unclean - and clearly a virgin brew from this new brewhouse. Love the idea of a Scottish Ale, it just needs a lot of work. 5/2/4/2/10=2.3 290806
