When you want to go deep and rich…there’s nothing like SIX quality malts to get you there. Combining them with Fuggle hops has created a Scotch Ale with pronounced caramel, coffee and chocolate notes. A full-bodied smoothness that is second to none enjoyed at 6-8°C.

This is a complex beer, and a really enjoyable challenge to brew. As with many things in life, it all comes down to getting the preparation right – in this case the proper milling and proportions of the different malts is vitally important to the quality of the finished product. We use 6 malts, 5 of which are specialty malts which add specific characteristics to the brew; for example, Crystal malt gives nice caramel, toffee notes, whilst Smoked malt imparts a very delicate smokiness which is noticeable when the Ale is served at 6-8ºC.
Our Traditional Scotch Ale is made with only natural ingredients: hops, 6 malts, water and yeast. It contains no additives.
