True to the Norgrove's Scottish Heritage, this Wee Heavy is brewed with Scottish malts and lightly hopped with East Kent Goldings. Big and Malty sweet, this ale will have you hearing bagpipes.

I understand my rankings are bit spread out here, but here's why. I like my beer to have a head on it, this didn't have much of one though lacing was present. Color was a deep deep amber, and aroma was earthy and clean. Nice and malty with some unique hopping on the finish, can't put my finger on it but I liked it. This ale weighs in at a big 8% but it went down like a bitter. A session strong ale if I have ever had one. A winner.
