Mike's Loch n' Lode (330ml Bottle)
The inspiration for this beer comes from a deep appreciation of heavily seated Islay Single Malt Whiskey, and a genuine fascination with the role of different malts in the complexity of a beer.
We love brewing beers that you can get your teeth into. Brewed with 11 different grains, wrap your laughing gear around this Mother Lode of Malts.
Scotch Ale was the name given to a strong pale ale from Edinburgh in the 19th century. This was typical of the strong pale ales brewed in Britain at that time - mainly pale barley malt and moderate hopping, and were not that stylistically different to English Strong Ales or Barley Wines. The name however became regionalised so that a strong pale ale from Scotland became known as a Scotch Ale or Wee Heavy. Beers using the designation Scotch Ale are popular in the USA where most examples are brewed locally. Examples of beers brewed in the USA under the name Wee Heavy tend to be 7% abv and higher, while Scottish brewed examples, such as Belhavens Wee Heavy, are typically between 5.5% and 6.5% abv.
