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.

poured cold from the bottle a semi transparent mahogany brown with ruby highlights, to a foothills 12oz pilsner glass with a hint of a toffee head leaving a sheet of quickly receding lace after each sip.

aroma brown sugar, graham cracker and dark toffee.

big roasty sweet malts up front, brown sugar, candied almonds.

light to medium bodied, smooth and slick, super sweet, light carbonation.

overall, a great Scottish ale. hearty.

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
