Gananoque Veteran’s Ale

Gananoque Veteran’s Ale

Description

Veteran’s Ale is a North American take on an 80 shilling Scottish Ale. The backbone of the beer is Canadian 2-Row, it derives its toasty accents form VICTORY malt, some bittering from WARRIOR hops with CENTENNIAL hops being used for aroma in recognition of the ongoing centenary of World War I. This beer is deep amber in colour with a moderate, creamy, off white head. It is a clean, malt-forward beer with slight fruitiness, a malt-focused aroma, bread and toasted malt notes, a hint of caramel, and some residual malt sweetness. Moderate body and mouth feel in a well-balanced package and just enough hop bitterness to keep the beer from being too sweet.

Scottish Ale

Scottish ales are generally dark, malty, full-bodied brews. Many examples have a hint of smokiness derived from the use of peated malt. 60, 70, and 80 shilling examples are all session ales under 5% abv, but the stronger "wee heavies" can range closer to 8%, with the accompanying increase in alcohol flavour and esters. Works well as an accompaniment to hearty meat and game dishes, sharp cheddar, atholl brose and shortbread.
