ParrotDog Sleuthhound (330ml Bottle)
‘Sleuthhound’ was an old Scottish term for a bloodhound, though it seems that there were actually slight differences between the two dogs. It’s fitting then that Sleuthhound was originally the home-brewed beer that Bloodhound was derived from, with it featuring a different yeast, different hops and also a touch of peat-smokedmalt. The result is a rich, fruity and full-bodied red ale featuring a hint of smoke.
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.
