Scottish-Style Ale

Scottish-Style Ale Beer

Scottish-Style Ales are brewed in the Scottish tradition that dates back to the Middle Ages. Scottish-Style Ale is typically on the darker side but can range from golden to dark chestnut in colour with a malt-forward flavour.

The maltiness of Scottish-Style Ale comes from the use of roasted malt in the brewing process which gives it a slight sweetness reminiscent of caramel or toffee. Scottish-Style Ales are typically very smooth, meant to be savoured, and it is best enjoyed at room temperature.

Scottish-Style Ale is a truly unique beer, and it is one that any beer lover should try.
