Red Duck – Loch Ness

2010 November 9

Interesting one this one.  The bottle promises a Scotch Ale, appropriately aged in whiskey barrels. Sweet, with a deep caramel flavour, this beer is 6.7%. As I kept drinking it, I could swear that a scotch-ey taste came through, but it could be the 6.7% part too! Quite a dry finish.

It’s very light on carbonation, and hop bitterness. I enjoyed it very much, but don’t think you’d want more than one in a sitting. Think about drinking it a tad warmer than usual to let all the complex flavours develop.

Rating: ★★★★☆
