Description and Tasting Notes
Light in alcohol content but dark in colour, our Scottish Light (or 60/-) delivers a rich and rewarding experience. A slow and low fermentation keeps things clean and crisp, and allows the array of delicate malt flavours to shine. Toasty rather than roasty notes are to the fore, alongside caramel, toffee, a gentle orchard fruitiness from restrained esters, and a hint of peat smoke. A balancing bitterness prevents the finish from being cloying but there’s enough residual sweetness to leave a satisfying mouthfeel that belies the low ABV. This under-represented style works equally well in summer or winter and ages well, making it a great choice for the fridge and the cellar.
