Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jason on 05-06-2013

In addition to being a nod to the famous Scottish pattern, a sett appeals to our uninhibited obsession with design. Scottish ales as a style are near and dear to us. This one was the seventh variation of our original recipe, but first in our hearts. The tartan we created has seven lines, each one getting larger, representing the beer getting closer to our goal. This smooth Scotch Ale is boiled for 90 minutes, during which we add brown sugar into our direct-fire brew kettle to impart a toasted caramel flavor. A malt forward ale, Sett Seven is just lightly hopped with English varieties.

Garnet brown color where light can pass through the center of the glass. Small head but with good, webby lace.

Darker, treacle like, sugar aroma. Plenty of toast to the nose as well.

Creamy, deeply toasted malt start. There is a light hop in the swallow, but this beer stays true to its roots. High level of carbonation. The aftertaste is chocolatey.
