Tartan Ale is brewed with five different malts including British pale ale malt, roasted barley and caramel, biscuit and Munich malts to give it a rich maltiness and deep amber colour. We use an English ale strain from Burton that gives the beer a light "apple" fruitiness to lighten up the malt to some degree. The malt is also balanced with a small amount of British hops used without donating much flavor – hops are classically not a big part of Strong Scotch Ales which are famed for their massive caramel malt tones and warming character.

    Picked up at the Ottawa brewpub. Pours a pretty thick foamy brownish head and has an extremely dark brown colour with reddish hues. Ok lacing. Has grainy malt aromas, a bit of breads and also some spices. Flavours are somewhat sweet, has notes of nuts, toffee and mild chocolate, and some herbal hops as well. Mouthfeel is warming and has a tingling feeling. Carbonation is average. Actually pretty easy going down, not what I was expecting at all. Pretty good stuff.

    Bottle from the Ottawa brewpub. Pours a dark brown colour with a nice clean ruby highlight. Big beige head with average retention and minimal lace. Aromas of roasted malt very well-blended with hints of coffee at first pour. Then, some dark fruits come out (dates, raisins) with some grainy malts. No burning at all, hardly a warming... real easy to drink. Again, the nice roasted malt and coffee pairing. Apples show up in the finish and thankfully, not too sweet overall. A real nice, easy-drinking, matly Scottish ale.
