A robust and agile amber ale, first introduced to our range in 1994, Special Ale carries an explosion of fruit on the aroma and palate with the fruity esters offering notes of raisins and pear drops. The malt blend provides notes of toffee, caramel and biscuit which balances perfectly against those flavoursome British hops. Superbly bittersweet and an icon of our range, Special Ale holds a special place in our heart.
An edgy take on a classic Scottish 80 shilling ale. Similar to an English bitter ale, Wee Jock is a full-on sessionable brew, blasted with flavour, a toffee nose and a spicy wee aftertaste.
