A Scottish-style ale is the medium-bodied, malty, clean base beer for a blend of spices.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary Cold Ice Packs with all liquid yeasts. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip, given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Product Details

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.

Wonderful beer
Bought this on sale. Easy to make, and just the right amount of spice. Wife usually likes only IPA's, but she loves this one.

Going to buy this again and again.

BTW, can someone give a breakdown of the spices?

thank you

Spice Profile Settled Over Time...
I brewed this batch on 9/28 (primary only) and bottled on 10/13. I used the full spice mixture, and the flavor really galled me until this weekend 11/22. The flavors have melded well and this has turned out to be a very nice winter ale. I am a fan!

Glad I tried it.
This was a great beer during Halloween to Thanksgiving time, and because I wanted to try something new. It tastes a little bit like a pumpkin ale. I did not get the big malty character out if it like others, may have mashed too low. In the end, it's a good beer that all people can enjoy and especially if you are looking for something different to brew.

I lost the spice packet. Anyone know what the spices are?

BEST ANSWER: They are usually close to what is used for wine mulling spices. Usually a combination of cinnamon, allspice, etc. I've seen them sold separately. Check the ingredient store inventory.
