Ok. This is one we took some liberties on. Firstly, most Scotch Ale is decidedly malt driven with very little hop note. Our version is much hoppier. We use Cascade to add delicate hop fragrance over the top of the beer and the middle palette. Secondly, we don't utilize a long boil to coax out rich melanoidin flavors or burnt caramel notes as many Scotch Ale producers do. Our Malt Bill includes a traditionally used malt - Golden Promise- and a few specialty malts to get us where we want to go. Think of it as a contemporary look at one of the most steadfast styles.

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/2 inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of fresh sweet malt, pale malt, hint of dry hop, slight hops, hint of pine, and a hint of roasted malt. Fits the style of a Scottish Ale with the addition of some hops. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of roasted malt, sweet malt, hops, hint of pine, and slight roasted malt. Overall, a good Scottish, with the addition of some hops.
