Brewpub København William Wallace - 80 Skilling Ale

Brewed by Brewpub København
Copenhagen, Denmark
4.7% Scottish Ale | 101 Ratings |
Danish: en øl der har taget navn efter den skotske lovløse ridder Sir William Wallace. Undernavnet ”80 skilling ale” er en ældre betegnelse for styrken, hvor man havde 60, 70 og 80 skilling, og indikere hermed at det er den stærkeste type. Dog ikke særlig stærk efter dansk målestok... William Wallace har en meget tydelig maltaroma og en kun ganske let humlebitterhed. En svag karakter af røg kan anes i eftersmagen.

English: William Wallace is named after the Scottish lawless knight, Sir William Wallace. William Wallace in 1297 headed the Scottish rebellion against the English for independance. The subname "80 Skilling" is an older notation for the strength, where 60, 70 and 80 shilling were used, indicating that this is the strongest. In Danish terms this isn’t a very strong beer though. William Wallace has a distinct maltaroma, and a very light hopsbitterness. A light note of smoke can be found in the after-taste.
