Starting a new tab, we are going to get into another brew from Starr Hill Brewery. The beer that will be feature is one of their high-end or 22oz bottle line. It is their Psycho Kilter Wee Heavy Ale The Gift Of Great Beer. If you read my earlier beer blog, you know the history of this brewery. If you have not, please, read those beer blogs to get to know this brewery. Let us get into the beer.
It has a dark blood-red color with a slight white to tan color head. The smell is sweeter caramel to some kind of sweet fruit notes. It is hard to make out. The taste is an extremely malty with smooth caramel notes. The aftertaste is a smooth but fade caramel finish. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Starr Hill’s Psycho Kilter is a full-bodied Wee Heavy brewed in the style of traditional Scottish ales. Its huge malty nose, with hints of to a roastiness, gives way to a full, sweet palate with low, but perceptible hop bitterness. A lingering warmth balances the rich and dominant maltiness.
Here is a description from their website (www.starrhill.com):
Starr Hill’s Psycho Kilter Wee Heavy is characterized by its huge malty nose with hints of roastiness. A full, sweet palate with very little hops, this high-gravity brew is the Scots’ unique specialty.

Closing out tab, this craft brewery is something else. I had nothing bad from this brewery. There was one which was their spring seasonal. It was not a bad beer but not a really good one. This beer is true to the classic beer style. Starr Hill Brewery knows that they are doing and they are doing it right. There is a nice malty notes but a nice hop to off set it just enough. It is sweet enough to not notice high alcohol percentage. I recommend you trying this brew. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
