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.

craftbeersweden (707) - SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2016
Clear, dark mahogny colored beer with a beige, two finger high, head.



Nose: Sweet caramel malt, dried fruit, plum, brown sugar and some tea.

Taste: Again caramel malt, nuts, fudge, chocolate and bread. I get some Coca Cola here also! Strange...

Mouthfeel: A bit light... Light carbonation. Medium to light body. A light bitterness at the end.



Smooth and very drinkable!

UXO (1922) - CANADA - JAN 18, 2016
Appearance: clear deep amber with a short dense light beige head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: dark malt, dried fruit, wood. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, mild bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-full slightly creamy body, soft carbonation, bittersweet finish. (4/5)

Another decent brew from Traquair house. Not overly sweet, and decent depth of flavour. These guys might be able to change my opinion on wee heavies… (14/20)

From bottle. Pours a dark brown with a one-finger white head. Aroma and taste of caramel and malts. Taste has all the qualities of a Scotch ale, caramel and lovely. Nicely sweet, but not too much. Medium full mouthfeel. Nice bitter sweet finish.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2016 Overrated beer! Plain british ale, not bad or outstanding, just regular stuff really.

3.7
olsvammel (7292) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle from Systembolaget. Malty smell with fruits and some meat broth. Similar taste with some caramel. The meat broth is slightly disturbing but besides that a nice beer.
