MacPelican's Wee Heavy Ale

MacPelican's Wee Heavy Ale

Availability: October

Our version of the "Wee Heavy" Scotch Ale style is literally a batch of MacPelican's Scottish Ale brewed with half the water and twice the boiling time to create a beer with a massive malty flavor and a deep red color. The aroma hints of rich caramel, cocoa, toffee, and tropical fruit, with a full-bodied mouthfeel and a velvety sweet, slightly dry finish. A robust beer with a dangerous, drinkable smoothness!
