STORY: Robert Burns the legendary Scottish poet used his role as an Excise man as an inspiration for the rollicking song the deil’s awa with the Exciseman. In the 19th Century it was the Excise men who had responsibility of applying tax to all beers and ales. The name 80/- derives from the duty rate stamped on the end of the casks.
TASTING NOTES: Exciseman’s 80/- was specially brewed to mark 25 Years of Brewing at Broughton Ales. It is a classic example of a Scottish 80/- with it’s bittersweet blend of flavours from crystal, black and pale ale malts, and fresh, aromatic hops. Dark amber in colour and full-bodied, this is just the sort of ale Burns would have savoured during his time as an officer of the Excise.
