A Scottish-style ale is the medium-bodied, malty, clean base beer for a blend of spices.
If you enjoyed Happy Holiday Ale, you'll love this kit!
Before hops became the conventional flavoring for beer, medieval European brewers used proprietary spice mixtures, and many modern breweries still use a blend of spices along with hops for seasonally-brewed holiday beers. We started with a Scottish-style ale and added a blend of spices to create a medium-bodied, malty, clean base beer with a sweet, exotic spice character reminiscent of mulled wine.

This is a very good winter ale the spice is just right and perfect for a cold day or even a warm day! Enjoy.
Even those in my family and friends who aren’t beer drinkers enjoyed this brew. I found that if you let it age 3-4 weeks it is smoother. The only suggestion is that when you add the spices remember to use a mesh bag.
Pretty good, not as good as the Happy Holiday Ale
Very Nice taste, smooth and the spice brings in a nice flavor.
Good for a Holiday gathering.
Just bottled this yesterday... yet the warm, uncarbonated sample was tremendous. A wonderful spice hue!
