COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Scottish ale with San Diego spirit. Our Piper Down Scottish Ale hits all the right notes for the Ballast Point Bagpipe Corps that inspired it. We created this very low hopped, malty ale for the band to enjoy using UK Maris Otter malt, roasted barley, UK hops and low fermentation temperatures. Then we let the brew’s sweet complexity build over a three-hour boil. Full of roasted caramel flavor, it’s a pub classic with Ballast Point personality.

Keg Brewpub. Not good. It's just sweet sugar, with cloying malt. No depth. Scottish ale my arse.

Draft sample. The beer is a clear copper with a white head of foam. Sweet and fruity aroma. Low bitterness in the taste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Doughy.

Idiosynkrasie (8204) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2017
650ml bottle. Clear, dark amber-ish brown colour with ruby glimmer and average, frothy, moderately lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Ephemeral, fruity hoppy aroma, hints of red berries, minimally toasty, nutty malty basis, a touch of cococnut. Taste is toasty malty, hints of coconut, slightly bitter hoppy overtones. Boring, rather expressionless.

Nice Scottish ale. It’s nice to see one of this style that isn’t 7-9% ABV. Aroma was good. Roasted malt, caramel and a little toffee. Pour was a beautiful dark burnt red with a one finger light tan head. Taste was full and malty. All the flavors of the aroma were big and mouth filling. This beer tastes like it’s 8%- not alcohol wise but because it’s so full flavored. Not a hop in site. Big chewy malty finish. Nice beer
