Scottish Ale

Traditionally lower in alcohol than the Scotch Ale, the Scottish Ale normally comes in three strengths: Light (around 3% ABV), Heavy (around 3.6% ABV), and Export (around 4.5% ABV).

Like the Scotch Ale, the Scottish Ale is a malt-forward beer, with hops traditionally used sparingly (since they were not common in Scotland). Color is usually amber to dark reddish brown, with the malt character reminiscent of burnt sugar. Yeast esters and earthy flavors are generally low as well.

Best served at cellar temperature, 55-57 degrees, and in a pint glass or beer mug.

Why mess with the perfection that is Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale? We just couldn’t help ourselves. Nitrogenating instead of carbonating gives this beer a creamier mouthfeel, and blends the malt flavors into one smooth, dreamy note. The smokiness is still present, but plays a supporting role.
