Scottish Export Ale – 6.8% – Bottle
This ruby beer is matured over the finest rum-infused American Oak heartwood resulting in a beer with a delicious warming character that is bursting with fruit and lively spiciness. These vibrant flavours perfectly balance the Bert’s toffee-nosed backbone making it an ideal accompaniment to game meats like venison or duck. It is sublime with mature cheeses served with good chutney and relishes.
It’s a bit too sweet, needs to be more balanced. Wouldn’t manage more than one.
Look – Clear dark amber, off white head.
Aroma – Spiced, fruit, plums and toffee.
Taste – Sweet, spices, toffee.
Feel – Tingly, light body.
Finish – Litter bitter and dryish.
£1.80 for 33cl from Sainsbury’s.
