Notes/Commercial Description:
30 IBUs - A bold Scottish ale with a complex malty body derived from roasted and crystal malts balanced with just the right combination of hops. This ale pours a deep ruby color, has a sweet malty nose with layered caramel and roasted notes and a full body. Robust yet smooth, Robert The Bruce is a malt lover’s delight.

Ap- dark brown, almost opaque. the head doesnt last long and just ends up clinging to the sides of the glass.

Ar- roasted malts, but sweet at the same time. brown sugar, molasses, caramel.

T- Sweet malts with a roasty flavor. Creamy in a way, finishes sweet with caramel notes.

M- medium bodied, good carbonation

O- I like this beer alot. Not usually a malt lover but something about this beer does it for me.

A lighter mahogany with about an inch of off-white foam. Smells like a malt farm doused in caramel. Some slight chocolate and butterscotch notes. Quite smooth in the delivery. High carbonation and roasted malt at the start that disintegrates into a sweet mid and finish. The mid is a bit watery. It ends really pleasantly for a Scottish, quite sweet and not very boozy. If it were a bit more robust in the middle, it would be extraordinary.

Like It? Yeah
