Big Rock Brewery Alastair’s Bonnie Fantastic Ale – Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy at 5.8% ABV

Big Rock Brewery Alastair’s Bonnie Fantastic Ale Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy at 5.8% ABV (C$2.53 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 650 ml, no bottle date or best before)

Appearance: cloudy medium amber with one finger of light tan head, good retention and lacing. (3/5) Aroma: peaty malt, grassy hops. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (3/5)

(That price is misleading – Dave the Beer Guy gives me his discount, and apparently they marked this one up by a factor of five or so, with the proceeds going to charity.) I’m not generally a big fan of this style, but at least this one has a hoppy bitter finish. OK, but not great. (12/20)
