Clansman Ale, 3.9% ABV
Golden Hebridean Bitter, brewed with Scottish malts. Lightly bittered, a session ale with a light golden colour. A good ‘all day’ ale with hop and malt character, with lots of malt in the finish. Lightly hopped to give a subtle bittering. A good session ale.
Islander, 4.8% ABV
Brewed with special coloured Scots malts, deep ruby in colour and predominantly malty with robust hopping match. Complex like the Hebrides themselves. Deceptively drinkable for an ale with such a high ABV.
Celtic Black Ale, 3.9% ABV
A dark porter style ale full of flavour,balancing an aromatic hop combined with a subtle bite and a pleasantly smooth caramel after taste.
