COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hope and King is a full-body brew and is rich in malt complexity. Brewed with both English and American barley and many, many specialty malts this deeply colored ale has hints of roasted chocolate, caramel and raisins with very little hop presence. Our interpretation of the classic ale that originated in Glasgow, Scotland.

Draught at the Town Hall Brewery, Minneapolis, MN.

Clear dark copper color with no head.
Sweet malt, wood, nuts and toffee. Although I like Scotland I’m not a big fan of Scotch Ale. However this is an example of a Scotch Ale I like quite a lot.

On tap at the brewpub.
Served in a pint glass.
Good looking red-amber body topped by a decent head.
This is a solid mainstream Scotch Ale that is at least on par with the typical version found in Scotland.

On tap at the Brewery. Pour is roasted Amber with a small tan head and decent lacing. Brown sugar, rich caramel, plummy, earthy, bready, and lightly spicy aroma. Taste is rich caramel, brown sugar, toffee, some raisins, dates, grapey, and bready. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Not bad.

GreatDane1632 (1174) - North Dakota, USA - JAN 29, 2015
On tap at the Brewery/Brewpub -- I thought this beer had the potential makings of a great Scotch. Although slightly light, I thought it needed more body.

Draft Sampler pours brown with a off white head. Aroma and taste are nice malts and grains.

Part of a flight at the taproom. Clear reddish brown pour. Nice balance of roast and sweetness with a slight hint of smoke. Not usually a Scotch ale kinda guy, but I dug this one.
