Scotch Ale

Sweet caramel malt dominates this traditional Scotch Ale. Premium English malts with minimal Northern Brewer hops lend sweet, complex flavors of caramel, honey, toast and some dark fruit notes. Ages very well.

Named after the highest mountain in the British Isles located in Scotland. Our Scotch Ale is hefty and smooth with a soothing, inviting flavor. Strong Scotch ale is a redundancy, as the more common Scottish ales are more modest in character than their redoubtable brethren. Scotch ale is often referred to as “wee heavy” and can resemble lagers more than ales, especially German bock beers.
