Claymore Scotch Ale | Great Divide Brewing Co. 

Style: Scotch Ale 

ABV: 7.7%


The Claymore  holds honor and valor to the classic scotch ale; a delicious take on "wee heavy" given it's name in 19th century Scottland. Great Divide gives us a heavy hitter and tasty contender for Scotch beers. Dark, ruby in color and thick in it's profile having a thin, whispy foam head with little to no retention. It's smooth and malt heavy at first taste with a sweet, caramel finish. An overall malty bacbone with a smooth taste giving you these sweet, carmilizied notes constantly. Common in Scotch brews, but this is no uncommon taste with a high ABV sitting at 7.7%  it has no alcohol heaviness, but all the great taste. With no forward hop profile the balance of this ale is apparent and delightful. Thank you Great Divide!
