St.-Ambroise Scotch Ale

It's no secret that I love Montreal, Quebec's McAuslan Brewing Inc. They are responsible for one of my all time faves, the St.-Ambroise Oatmeal Stout, as well as a host of other quality beers. On such brew is there St.-Ambroise Scotch Ale. This punchy ale is sold in 341mL bottles with a pale tartan label featuring a bagpiper. It contains 7.5% alcohol.

This is a handsome amber coloured ale. It is topped with a quickly thinning cream head and has a bready, malt driven aroma. In terms of flavour, it's boozy, malty, and graced with some caramel notes. This stuff is very full flavoured and robust. The finish is slightly bitter, but the maltiness remains.

This is a fine scotch ale--it's tasty, strong, and mad malty. There's lots of boozy warmth in this beauty.  Give it a go.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
