Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy

Strong, full-bodied, malty pale ale brewed initially in Edinburgh, Scotland. The style dates from as far back as the 19th century. These beers are strong in alcohol, flavour and aroma and hops are typically used generously to balance out the rich malty flavours. They are normally made with both roasted and pale barley malt. Scottish versions tend to have a lower alcohol content compared to American variants. Wee Heavy is sometimes referred to as 90/- and could be regarded as a strong sub-category of Scottish Ale. ABV 5.8-8%.
