Review – Great Divide Claymore Scotch Ale
From Great Divide Brewing Co. – Named for a medieval Scottish sword, Claymore Scotch Ale is a tribute to the legendary “Wee Heavy” beers of Scotland. A malty, deep-ruby-hued ale, it features a generous amount of caramel sweetness, a reserved hop profile and a subtle warming character, at 7.7% alcohol by volume. Claymore will be available in six-packs and on draft through mid-April.
