Scotch Ale (Perry Street Brewing)

November 7, 2014 by

Perry StreetI’ve already sung my praise of Perry Street Brewing and all their success in my recent review (Read the article here: Today I want to talk about what I consider to be their best beer: The Scotch Ale.

Deep amber in color, this beer has a mild head that’s easier to cut through than William Wallace’s. With a bold malty aroma, it eases your palette from a crisp, sweet start to a roasty and caramel finish. There’s nothing funny about the Scotch, and like them, this beer is all business. Offering a respectable 6.6% ABV, and a very mild 25 IBU’s, you end up with a sweet beer that hits so many flavor notes, but never overs stays its welcome on any. Brewmaster and owner, Ben Lukes, has truly outdone himself on this beer. And perfect for the season, it’s a fantastic transition beer for fall, moving from the Kolsch’s and Goldens of Summer, and before the Porters and Stouts of the Winter. But don’t overlook this beer, it is a great choice for any time of year.
