A classic Scotch Ale. Scotch ales are typically sweet and malty, with a very subdued dose of hops - just enough to provide balance. AleSmith Wee Heavy is a wonderful interpretation of this traditional Scotch style. Deep mahogany color with nice tan head. Rich, toasty, malty aroma and flavor with a faint touch of smokiness. A tinge of hops provides the perfect balance to the maltiness. Full-bodied, smooth and warming.
AleSmith's Wee Heavy is an outstanding accompaniment to gamier meats, including venison or wild boar. Also great with grilled steak.
A Scottish-style brown ale with an attractive dark cherry color; a soft, lightly chewy body and a hint of licorice in its malt character. Rich and dark yet not too strong. 1996 Best Show at the Chicago Real Ale Festival.
This chewy Scotch ale pairs beautifully with smoked or grilled meats, particularly gamey meats such as rabbit or venison.
Scotland is known for its wonderfully malty beers. This beer is in the Wee Heavy tradition with a firm body, creamy head and dark tawny color. It has a rich malty, caramel, toasted flavor, a slight alcoholic warming with a clean well balanced hop bitterness.
Game birds, lamb and roast pork are ideal food pairings for this Scottish Ale.
