Oggis McGarveys Scottish Ale (650ml Bottle)
A rich, malty Scottish style ale brewed with a splash of molasses in the boil to create a unique Caramel flavour. Small quantities of hops are used to keep the bitterness low and the aroma and finish clean and crisp. Named for our first brewmaster in Del Mar, John Garvey. Gold Medal winner at the 2008 World Beer Cup.
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.
