Scotch ale isn't just “ale, from Scotland”. No, no, no. Scotch ale (sometimes referred to as Wee Heavy) is a style of strong ale characterised by its rather high ABV and dark hue, with a flavour profile to match - intense and enjoyably sweet, which comes from comes from boiling the wort for longer than usual. Though you’d think these would only be allowed to be produced in Scotland, Scotch ale can actually be made all over the world, with Belgium and the USA being big fans of putting together a caramel-rich Scotch ale. Pick one up if you’re looking for a warming treat on a winter evening.
