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.

yespr (30909) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2007
50 cL bottle. Pours hazy amber and with a dense light brown head. Slight fruity aroma and with a solid level of brittish aroma hops, slight spiced. Flavour is slight smoked, caramel malt and with a slight acidity. Ends slight acidic, infection?

Ungstrup (29217) - 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.

Papsoe (25088) - 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

Bottle. Hazy brown coloured with an off white ehad. Aroma of malts, caramel and fruits with light acidic notes. Light acidic flavour of caramel.

oh6gdx (20299) - 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.

omhper (19310) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2007
Bottled. Clear mahogany colour, minimal head. Syrupy, lightly woody nose. Sweet with caramel and molasses. Medium bodied with hard mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Simplistic and rough.

Dedollewaitor (13802) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 25, 2007
Unclear muddy brown with no head (at all). Malty caramel/fruity aroma & taste. But then a Thin body with a very sour edge/mouthfull. Something went wrong up in this joint!

MiP (13577) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2007
UPDATED: APR 15, 2007 Draught. Very dark brown colour. Malty flavour, not as peppery as expected. Full mouthfeel. OK, but could use more punch. 6 3 6 3 13

Bottle, 7.6%. Good hop aroma. Cloudy chestnut colour, small head. Quite acidic flavour, lactic acid. I guess there is some malt in there, but it is hidden behind this terrible acid flavour. 3 3 2 3 1
