STORY: For centuries the soldiers of the Highland and Lowland Regiments of Scotland have been referred to as “Jocks” : powerful fighting men who have won battle honours all over the world from historical times to the present day. These men, who often fought in terrible conditions against great odds, were renowned for their determination and valour. Old Jock Ale reflects the strength and character of these men who would have enjoyed such a strong ale.
TASTING NOTES: This dark red ale has a full-bodied flavour of malt on an excellent background of hop bitterness. The sweet malt offsets the fruity bitterness of the Perle and Bramling Cross. Savour this ale like a fine wine. Old Jock is a classic Scottish Ale and like all strong ales is best enjoyed at room temperature 10-12 deg C.
