Hop Scottish and Kegs

So last weekend I kegged the Hop Scottish and the un-doctored Scottish Heavy Ale.


Again, hops and Scottish beers are like opposites, so to me to see a nice load of whole hops chillin’ in the fermenter with Scottish beer just cracks me up, I know I’m slightly touched. Both the transfers went fine, no big deal, the whole hops are a little bit of a pain to get out of the carboy, but no big deal. The traditional Scottish tasted fine, flavorful, but light and refreshing and the hop Scottish tasted a little wacked – like someone put mint in iced-tea. Not that it doesn’t work, but when you’re not ready for it it like a bonk on the noodle. The traditional is actually on tap now, more on that to follow.
