Dan reminisces while drinking Rohrbach Brewing Company Scotch Ale, a classic style, as his nineteenth beer from the NYS Craft Beer Box.
STYLE: Scotch Ale
AVAILABILITY: 16-Ounce cans, Draft
Stats above taken from the brewery’s can, website, and Untappd.
Ruby/brown in color with a beautiful, tan head.
Deep, rich caramel nose.
Balanced, with a slight edge of the malt, with the caramel and roast/toast continuing.
Full mouthfeel, coating the palate.
I love that a scotch ale is a flagship…this brew was immensely nostalgic for me, as scotch ale/wee heavy used to be in higher demand way back. Pairing-wise, you can go savory or sweet with this; rustic poultry/fowl or even barbecue to caramel-based desserts or pecan pie might be fun.
Cheers and remember:
Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
