On tap at Lancaster, a Scottish ale fermented with Belgian yeast.
A: The ale is dark, a reddish brown amber color, just dark enough to prevent me from seeing through to the other side. Resting atop the ale is an off-white head.
S: The aromas are a hybrid, fuller caramel malts paired with the estery sweetness of Belgian yeast - light fruits and spices cutting into the malts.
T: Roasted caramel, full maltiness, starts things off right. It's fullness is sweet but without the normal peaty touch. Mid-sip the Belgian yeast asserts itself, bringing ligher fruits and sugary sweetness to the ale. The two flavors are a study in contrasts - rich breads against sweet Belgian yeast. Both flavors come together in the finish - sweet and chewy.
M: A hybrid that works nicely - the transition bringing maltiness and sweet yeasty fruits to together. The ale is full, tasting bigger than it is.
