From a lineage of cryptic beer names... Hud-a-wa is Scots for "hold the wall" and was the nickname of one of our great-great-grandfathers. He was a strong fella who once held up a wall while his workmates escaped from a collapsing mine. Hed have approved of this strong amber ale: rich and restorative, yet with enough hop to keep you coming back for more. As Hud-a-wa would have said: "Heres tae us, whas like us, damn few, and theyre a deid... mairs the pity!

Strong- very hoppy ale. Strong malt aroma but not much malt taste. Hops are resinous and citrusy. Toffee and flowers on the nose. Not sweet like a scotch ale. But enough going on to keep it interesting.

colui72 (563) - HONG KONG - OCT 11, 2015
Hazy brown with medium lasting cream head. Malty aroma and a totally sugarless taste. Malts and yeast are on the side of a massively bitter ale. Something is missing...

On tap In canberra. pale amber small head. hop aroma, unusual for a scotch ale. Sweet up front but with substantial hop bitterness. Big hop flavour. lots of dry hopping. more like an imperial ipa. I?m enjoying this but it?s SO far out of style!

Light haze on this orange - amber beer, decent cream colour head. Smooth palate, airy and a little dry. Moderate fine carbonation. Mellow dark malts, little creamy sweetness. Tangy ripe orange leading to mild marmalade. Trace of red berry fruits. Finishes with a little hop spice and a good dose of bitterness. Long strong bitter linger. Tasty.

Bottle from Cornelius. Murky ruby body with lots of yeast flecks floating around. Medium off-white head. Aroma of candy, orange and strawberry. Flavour of orange, juicy tomato and caramel biscuit. Faint spice. Thin body with an oily texture. Light fizz. Good flavour but it could with a bit more body.
