Little Italian microbrewery White Pony continues to show their love of brewing big, bold flavoursome beers - and whacky beer names - with this Strong Scotch Ale.
As usual for this brewery, this beer isn’t exactly to style. Made using crystal and roasted malts, with American hops. And as it is brewed in a small Belgian brewery, there is a Belgian yeast twist.
This beer has a big caramel malt body, with roasted malt, brown sugar, dark fruit, toffee and hints of coffee. There is a low level of hop bitterness; just enough to balance the malt which is the hero of this beer.
Despite the dominant malt body, the beer is not cloying, finishing quite dry with a warming aftertaste.
