Great Scot! An Organic Pale Ale!

The label design made me think American craft brew, but indeed this one is from http://www.caledonian-greatscotbrewery.co.uk/brewery_home.html Caledonian Brewery, Edinburgh.  There is a slight essence of butterscotch in the bouquet, along with a dose of hops and a final breath of alcohol.  It has a sweet quality as well.  This honey-colored ale is quite effervescent, sports a decent head and plenty of lacing that slowly slides back into the brew.  Great Scot is light bodied, grainy, dry and has a touch of carmel and some more alcohol in the finish.  It’s pretty good.  It tastes fresh, not like what I typically expect from a Scottish import.  On top of it all, it is organic and vegan friendly, I read on the label, not knowing that beer is generally made to be vegan unfriendly.  Curious.
