Ølfabrikken Gæstebryg #2 - McWilder

Formerly brewed at Bryggeriet Ølfabrikken (Gourmetbryggeriet - Harboe)
Roskilde, Denmark
6% Scottish Ale | 22 Ratings | Special Release |
An Ølfabrikken guest brew. For the second time we have invited one of our colleagues to come by and do any brew he or she would like.
ØLFABRIKKEN MCWILDER is a Scottish ale brewed with no less than three types of roasted malts. The result is a complex ale with a pleasant malt sweetness and notes of smoke and chocolate. McWilder is brewed by Nick Wilder who has been trained in the art of brewing in both USA and Germany.
McWilder is, of course, unpasteurized, unfiltered and bottle conditioned like all of our beers.
