COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A delightful Scottish beer inspired by a brewing book from 1847 where there is a story about a beer that is clear and very brisk, and, consequently, very agreeable to the palate. Our modern interpretation of this beer uses four different malts (Pale Ale, Crystal, Chocolate and Roast Barley). Hops are added in small quantities in two stages to ensure that the malt character typical of Scottish ales is not overwhelmed.

mutz (1015) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2016
Donkerbruin rode kleur. Aroma van caramel, gebrande mout. Smaakt dun en waterig. bitterzurig, vaag mout. Onaangename bitterzure afdronk. Ik vind er niks aan, misschien een slechte fles?

Heidbummer (518) - SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Pours dark, decent tight head. Promises a lot on the nose: caramel and hops. Drinks a bit disappointing as sweeter than it should be. Lots of malt and caramel but not enough bitterness for me. Easy drinking. A decent session beer but for the sweetness which is just a touch too prominent.
