COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Underneath Lucan sits a large, ancient granite aquifer which delivers classic brewing water for a malty ale. At Brau Bros, we fill in the remaining ingredients to brew Bancreagie Peated Scotch Ale. Named for the light-colored rock itself, Bancreagie relies on a complex and deep malt bill, featuring authentic peat-smoked malt. A traditional Scottish yeast is pitched and ferments a sweet, smoky and malty ale.

drowland (7917) - Georgia, USA - JUN 15, 2014
6/15/14. 12oz bottle from Happys in Cedar Falls. Deep red brown pour with a small khaki head that fades to a small ring. Sweet aroma, cherry, chalky caramel, oxidized, mild chocolate. Mild, sweet flavor, not particularly peaty or smokey, more of a hint of bitter, charred chocolate and caramel, some cherry and oxidation. Eh.

shrubber85 (11011) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Bottle. Peaty scotch whisky, toffee malt, yeast, and herbal hay aroma. Dark amber with minimal head. Moderately sweet scotch whisky, toffee malt, and mildly bitter hay flavor Nice body. Pretty boozy.

Patrickctenchi (6359) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 11, 2016

weihenweizen (3413) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a snifter. Hazy bronze, medium, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is caramel malt and a little peat.

bigcat03 (298) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - JUL 16, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2016 Bottle poured into an English pint. Caramel color and a huge cream colored head with little lacing to speak of. A whole lot of caramel malt, cigar humidor, and an earthy note as well. Taste is caramel malts, charred, and woody. A very dry finish and smoky aftertaste. Body is little watery and carbonation is low. This is an interesting one. It?s kind of like an amber with a lot of extra character. Not really something I?d want to drink more than one of.

euniceradio (516) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2016
UPDATED: APR 1, 2016 On tap to pint. Pours cloudy iced tea, no head except for a soapy swirling. Aroma of malted grains and caramel. Aroma is faint with no head. Taste of scotch whiskey, some caramel, tobacco, juicy fruit and orchard fruit. Lots of apple. Finish is dry and semi-bitter. I usually don?t like smoked peat but thus brew is complex and interesting. One pint is a fun journey. The appearance is off-putting.

Kind of an odd appearance with a small head & a dirty dishwater color. Has a real odd finish. Not for me.

pkbites (889) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle. Cola brown/dark amber pour is quite lovely. Artificial smoke flavor sucks. I dont like it at all!!! It overpowered anything even remotely nice about this. Light beer mouth feel, and light smokey aftertaste would have been alright if I imagined the artificial house fire smell and flavor werent there. Smelled and tasted like Resinol Ointment Salve (look it up, Junior!) Nope. Avoid!

On tap at the brewery (Marshall, MN). Copper in color, clear, small off white head and moderate lacing. Aroma of grain, some smoke and some scotch. Taste is scotch, smoked malts and grain, quite boozy. Good beer very enjoyable.
