Scottish Heavy 70/-


This is the first try at formulating my own recipe. It turned out quite nice, malty with just a touch of hops. You may not be able to drink just one! This is one of the smoothest batches I ever brewed. It is really smooth even after only 2 weeks in the bottle. The rather intense malt flavor and low hopping rate makes it a refreshing change of pace from my steady production of IPA.
