Friday's Beer !

From Edinburgh ....
Scottish Courage Ltd. !!
McEwan's Scotch Ale / Malt Liquor/ Wee Heavy 8.0% in a 355ml bottle

Some confusion over what this is exactly .... Malt Liquor / Scotch Ale ?

As far as I can tell it's the only 8% abv brew they make so I'll go with the product info from the brewer.
The brew pours a zesty head of tan foam over a clear coffee brown body. That thick head settles down to about 1/2 inch after a few minutes and then becomes a lacy remnant after a sip or two.

The aroma of a bakeshop underlies grassy meadows and some citrus fruit and even a bit of alcohol in the mix. A very promising combination of scents that is strong but not too much of anything.

On the lips and over the tongue she's a bonny lass! Smooth, creamy and so full of freshness.. robust malts that almost provide a chocolate like flavour, very rich taste and almost sweet. She finishes leaving an aftertaste of toasted caramel.

With the appetizing qualities here ... No problem quaffing two or three of these at all!
I'd recommend this strong beverage for meals or just for the experience.

Very Good! Other Opinions !

Cheers! And as always ... get on over to www dot dustmybroom dot com for Friday Night Blues & Beer !
