COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mainly available filtered in bottles, though part of the production goes unfiltered into cask.
The traditional brewing process used in the production of Traquair House Ale consists of the following; 1. Traditional infusion mashing process. The wort is then drawn off and boiled during which process the hops are added. 2. The wort is now cooled and pitched with top fermenting yeast under controlled temperature. It is then fermented in oak over a period of seven days. The beer is then transferred into cold storage tanks or barrels and matured over a period of weeks. After maturation the beer is filtered prior to packing.

CountDrugula (35) - - APR 15, 2016
Color caoba con poca espuma. Aroma muy intenso y complejo lleno de frutas pasas, caramelo, notas de madera, levadura y algo de regaliz. En el trago no es tan densa como prometen el aroma y el volumen alcohlico, pero todas sus notas se ven ensalzadas y complementadas por un dulzor complejo y nada empalagoso. Sencillamente genial.

Cool_Bond (2601) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2016
Yeast, malt, alcohol and Mazarin in the fragrance. Malty, light ash coal and burnt taste. Okay bitterness that fills the mouth for a long time. A little too bitter for me. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

A brown dark color. A lot of sirup caramel and a nose of coffee. The taste is long and despite the 7.2 in alcoholic there is almost no taste of it. Perfect balance
