Scottish Ale

spring

Scotland. The land of kilts, bagpipes and beer.

Our love of the latter led us to brew a Scottish Ale of our own. And brew we did. Our clean, malty and faintly peaty version brings a down-home approach to this highland ale and results in a beer so good that it might bring Nessie out of hiding.

History

Traditional Scottish session beers reflecting the indigenous ingredients, with less hops than their English counterparts due to the need to import them. Long, cool fermentations are traditionally used in Scottish brewing.

Appearance

Deep amber. Very clear due to long, cool fermentation temperature. Low to moderate, creamy off-white to light tan-colored head.

Aroma

Medium malty sweetness, accentuated by low kettle caramelization.

Flavor

Malt is the primary flavor, but isn’t overly strong. The initial malty sweetness is accentuated by a low kettle caramelization, and is accompanied by a low diacetyl component.

Overview

  • ABV: 5.5%
  • IBU: 19.6
  • OG: 1.053
  • FG: 1.012
  • SRM: 18.7

Food Pairing

Pairs well with food reminiscent of good ol' Highland cuisine: Grilled red meats, roast pheasant or grouse, and haggis.
