Schlafly Single Malt Scottish Ale is brewed with a single variety of barley, Optic, from the Cook family farm in Scotland (owned by our co-founder’s in-laws). The flavor of the Optic is balanced by British hops for bitterness and a UK yeast strain for a fresh, bready flavor. We age the beer in freshly-emptied Highland Scotch Whisky barrels from the Glen Garioch Distillery only 10 miles from the farm where the barley was grown.

Our Single Malt Scottish Ale is offered in celebration of the 21st anniversary of Schlafly Beer.

This 2012 vintage will age well in a cool, dark place for several years, but it is ready to enjoy now.

(Served in a globe glass)

A- This beer pours the color of a dried orange peel with a sea of microbubbles supporting a bubbly rocky head of beige that last a good bit.

S- The dry caramel malt has a nice peaty earthy aroma to it with gentle smokiness to the finish. There is a nice buttery diacetyl hint that comes through as it opens.

T- This beer has a leathery peat flavor that is gentle and very pleasant blending with a rich malty flavor that has some nice dry toffee notes and a dry smoke quality to it.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle alcohol heat that compliments the malty flavor and a gentle fizz that cleans up the finish.

O- This is the best taste of peat in a beer I have had. It is mellow and rich and really compliments the malt as does the faint smoky hints that really capture what smoke should be and no trace of band-aids. Well built beer and very tasty.
