AleSmith Wee Heavy Scotch Ale (750ml Bottle)

AleSmith Wee Heavy Scotch Ale 750ml Bottle

Description

J. P. Gray's Wee Heavy Scotch Ale Scotland's bone-chilling winters command a strong, richly-flavoured brew. J. P. Gray's Wee Heavy is such an ale. Named for Brewmaster Skip Virgilio's maternal grandfather, J. P. Gray's is a blend of the prized Maris Otter barley and dark roasted barley which imparts a slightly smoky flavour and a deep chestnut appearance. In the style of a classic Scottish wee heavy, this fine ale is remarkably smooth and malty with background flavours of chocolate and molasses. Warmth is provided by a substantial 9% alcohol by volume. The high alcohol and fresh ingredients allow this ale to age well over time. Appearance: Deep mahogany colour, sparkling clarity, and excellent head formation and retention when properly served. flavour: Deep caramelly malty flavour with just a hint of smoke in the finish. Aroma: The aroma is sweet and voluptuous, reflecting the flavour with malt, hop and yeast characteristics. Mouthfeel (body/texture): Lush, full, rounded, almost chewy. This is a BIG beer!

Scotch Ale

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.
