This is my finest Scottish Ale to date. (I've tried 3 recipes.) This is very similar to McEwan's Scotch Ale. Very strong, very malty, very good. I highly recommend it. I fermented at about 68 degrees, and I think that helps to get a good clean malty flavor. I swear..this beer has given me flavorgasms. Very, very, good stuff. Deep red garnet color, nice light tan head that lasts all the way down the glass. Great clarity. Superb flavor. (Yes, I'm tooting my own horn! But screw it.)
