Caledonian Brewery – Great Scot

This has a ‘winey’ taste with hop and sweet notes in a good malt base. This ale is a new brew for 2015 Burns Night. Brewed in Edingburgh by the 140 year old Caledonian Brewery commemorating the great Scotish poet.Robert Burns

As a.child I remember passing the High Street pubs on a warm summer day, when the pub doors were open and you could see the bar with those strange posts (beer engines) on the bar and that distinctive, even then, pleasing aroma. This ale has that reminiscent aroma that conjures up that memory.
