Highlander Scottish Ale

The Highlander Brew Co. of from South River, Ontario brews Highlander Scottish Ale, a darkish copper coloured beer topped with a nice eggshell head. It comes in a handsome 500mL bottle and clocks in at 5% alcohol. The bottle says "learn life taste freedom". It's moderately carbonated and leaves a healthy does of lace in the glass.
Highlander has a sweet, malty aroma, with notes of raisin and caramel. The flavour is malt forward with some fruitcake-y notes of raisin and fig. It's very pleasant--rich without being daunting.
This flavourful brew is a fine after dinner sipper. It's quite enjoyable, though not terribly refreshing. It's a brew with lots of character that tastes like it was shipped over by St. Andrew himself.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
