COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Three Sisters Scottish Ale (4.2% abv) is a dark, fruity, refreshing ale that proves a perennial favourite, and is named after the dramatic range of mountains in Glencoe.
Chocolate Malt helps to give this beer its very attractive dark ruby colour, as well as contributing to some of the toasty and liquorice flavours in the beer.
However, a very large charge of whole-flower hops balances the dark malt character with an abundance of hop fruit flavours. These include dried and fresh fruit flavours as well as some more citrus tones not normally found in such a dark beer.
There’s enough ‘going on’ in Three Sisters to keep even the most demanding real ale aficionado happy, whilst the very approachable fruit makes this a popular drink across the board.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2010
Cask @ Abbotsford, Edinburgh. Deep red with stable head and lacing. Really nice aroma. Fruity and spicy with a big fresh malt. Flavors are bread, fruit, and spice. Balanced with dry, hoppy, toasty finish. Nuanced but integrated.

patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 10, 2010
cask at Bow Bar in Edinburgh - Pours dark red with a small, lasting head. It has a caramel and toffee malt smell. The flavor is smooth caramel malt with mild hops. The sweet malt leads though. While pretty unremarkable, it’s good.

DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2011 Cask, Coventry 2010. Can’t drink it without Tom Waits’ Two Sisters running through my mind- a headstart for any beer. Alas, the ale is mildly anticlimatic with some pleasing butter biscuit, soap, milk and crushed nuts but too faint to be interesting at this stage. Hints of toffee and berries; cask, sulphur and an alluring but faint rub of US hop in the aroma. Tea-hued with a plump cream lid. Pretty good I suppose.

downender (8729) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Inn on the Green, Bristol 18/02/10. Copper coloured with a frothy, off-white head. Sweet, caramel and fruit aroma with some fruity hops. Flavour was also sweet, with at touch of chocolate, before a contrasting, bitter, hoppy finish. Very good.

2.3
deyholla (11900) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Bottle. Poured a clear amber brown with a small tan head. Aroma had notes of dough and a musty woods as well as some chocolate. Flavor was musty as well that made the other notes (chocolate and light fruits) less enjoyable.

3.4
madmitch76 (25101) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2009
8th May 2008. Smooth ale with toffeish malt and a nice fruity note in the finish. A brief bitter snap at the very end.

3.6
larsga (7602) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2009
Small creamy pale beige head. Reddisy coppery body. Faint floral aroma with fruity notes. Dry-sweetish roasty caramelly fruity taste with floral notes. Very harmonic. Soft, mild, and smooth mouthfeel. Clean palate. Mid-bodied. Dryish roasty wooden dusty aftertaste with fruity notes. Very, very nice. (0.25l cask, Cloisters, Edinburgh.)
