Beer Spotlight: Newcastle Scotch Ale – Collaboration Edition

 

 

Newcastle Introduces Scotch Ale, Inaugural Beer in a Series of “Collaboration Editions” Created with Venerable European Breweries

To brew the first offering in the series, Newcastle turned to its Edinburgh, Scotland-based sister brewery, Caledonian, to develop a special ale that brings world-class traditional British brewing to casual beer drinkers around the world.

The Newcastle Scotch Ale collaboration is a limited-time offering from Newcastle and Caledonian that represents the best of English and Scottish brewing: a rich, full-flavored and fulfilling Scottish ale with toffee notes at 6.4 percent ABV and 40 IBUs. Scotch Ale is a bold yet balanced beer that will please lifelong Newcastle fans as well as more adventurous drinkers.

“Newcastle Scotch Ale is a well-balanced, malt-forward brew with a delightful velvety finish,” said actor, blogger and beer aficionado Wil Wheaton. “Basically, Newcastle and Caledonian made a kick-ass beer that does not suck.”
