Pig Minds Brewing – Smokey Scott – 3 out of 7 smokestacks of happiness


This is a good malty beer, but where is Smokey Scott? He seems to have given up smoking cold turkey. This is a Scottish Ale, not a Scotch Ale; yes there is a difference according to google. If I were to drink this beer blind, I would not have guessed it was a smokebeer. Malty, rich, sweet, and dry. Notice foamy head, but not too foamy, and not a true smokebeer. Final score – 3
