Scottish Ales (not to be confused with Scotch Ales) can trace their heritage back to the Neolithic Era 50 centuries ago. Modern Scottish Ales usually have a longer boil which caramelizes the wort, followed by an incomplete fermentation. These result in a beautiful caramel color, an ABV of 3-6% and a sweet, malty flavor. Scottish brewers categorized their beers by how much a hogshead cost.
Missing Link’s Scottish Ale is a cross between Scottish Export and Wee Heavy ales. This beer has characteristic deep malt flavors with hints of chocolate and caramel. It is smooth with the overall impression of a Wee Heavy without the high alcohol content typically associated with this style.
