Naked Jubota Strong Scotch Ale
This Strong Scotch Ale has been a favorite every year in our homebrew shop. The malts we use impart a wonderful, fresh grain character, while oak aging and the resultant vanilla lingers on the palate. Rich and luxuriously malty, the complexity continues throughout. Dark golden in color, this beer is made with top tier floor malted Pale Ale malt as a base.
This beer was chosen by a close friend to become our version of another commercial brew. Whilst it fermented, that friend was accidentally shot in the stomach by a careless northern woodsman. Touch and go, the friend survived, and we named it after his tortuous ordeal. Happily, the location of the bullet was not in the body part the original beer was named for, nor did it have the effect the original beer described. Care to guess which beer the original was?
We now have on tap a lighter session version of this beer.
