Pouring a dark brown with bright flashes of red when it hits sunlight, this gorgeous Scottish ale, which uses ten kinds of malts, carries flavours of caramel and fruit loaf. A smokiness carries onto a nose that has a woody, nutty quality that adds brilliantly to the brew's wintry feel. Hops: Tettnang.

Our Lager takes its inspiration from the German style of lager, Helles. It has a sweet, malty flavour balanced with a light aromatic hoppiness that makes it very refreshing. We use Naked Golden Oats to make our Lager. Naked Golden Oats are grown without husks so that even more sweetness and flavour can be extracted from the grains during brewing.
