Simple Things Fermentation Big Ideas Series 03 Scottish Light

Background

Light in alcohol content, but dark in colour and big on flavour, the Scottish Light (or 60/-) makes use of a long boil and a complex malt bill to deliver a rich and rewarding experience to the drinker. A slow and low fermentation keeps things clean, crisp and refreshing and allows the array of delicate flavours to delight the palate. This under-represented style overperforms relative to its ABV, works equally well in summer or winter and ages well, making it a great choice for the fridge and the cellar.

Tasting Notes

This is a malt-forward beer with toasty rather than roasty notes to the fore, alongside caramel, toffee, a gentle orchard fruitiness from restrained esters, and a hint of peat smoke. A balancing bitterness prevents the finish from being cloying but there’s enough residual sweetness to leave a satisfying mouthfeel that belies the low ABV.
