In this beer blog, we are going to get into Old Nation Brewery for the first time on this blog. It is their Ten Penny Bit Scottish Ale. There is not much of history on their website and Facebook sites. I just looked up information on other sites and still no luck. I know this is a fairly newer brewery. I would say two to three years old. One of the owners or brewmaster came from Detroit Brewery Company. Let us get into this Scottish ale.
It has a slightly cloudy amber color with a constant white head. The aroma has a slight malty to biscuit notes. The taste has a dry malty, biscuit, and some bread notes with a dry slight burn alcohol aftertaste. It is a pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a desecration from their website (www.oldnationbrewing.com):
Tastes of biscuit, caramel and toasted bread. Just enough Michigan hops to balance.
ABV 5.1% • IBU 35
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, I am not a huge fan of this beer style. There is nothing wrong with this beer style. I just love hops and this beer style is traditional does not have hops in the beer. This is a pretty solid beer but it is not my cup of beer. It is a well build beer and they did a great job. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
