Scottish Ale (41)
The main difference between these varieties is alcohol strength and original gravity. Scottish ales are deep amber to dark copper in colour and have low to medium carbonation. Like Scotch Ales, these beers endure a long boil that creates carmelization. The taste is balanced toward malts, which are not overly strong and fruity esters might be present. Hop bitterness is usually low and hop flavour is low to none. Peat flavour may be present which may taste earthy or slightly smokey, but this style should not be overly smokey tasting. Finish is usually dry. ABV is 2.5-6% and IBUs are 15-30.
