This was a great beer. Found mine at BevMo. The bottle is simple, and I was sold on it’s tag line “A handmade ale brewed in the ancient brew house, in the oldest inhabited house in Scotland” (Product of Scotland) Give it a shot. I could easily keep one in the fridge for special occasions. I think this beer does well on it’s own, or would make a nice compliment to BBQ, roasted veggies or red meat.
