COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a Scottish ale, brewed in honor of Robert Burns (1759-1796) and inspired by Scottish whisky. It is a so-called single-hop ale, where only one type of hops is used for both bitterness and aroma. This ale has a gorgeous mahogany colour, a rich malty tase with a touch of Danish smoked malt and a tad of oak in the aftertaste.

Pinball (10779) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2008
bottle, best bf may 2008, tasted july 2008. aroma : bread, caramel, nuts, smoked notes. dark brown with vanilla head, flavor same as aroma, smoked notes showing a bit more. mouthfeel a bit foamy/soapy - but then it is past its best before date. aftertaste is a nice smoked nuts and caramel thing. i like this one a lot. Wonder how it would’ve been if it was a bit fresher. although past its best before date, no hints at all of aged beer taste and no alc. yet another good one from wintercoat
