About This Beer
A classic Scotch Ale. Scotch ales are typically sweet and malty, with a very subdued dose of hops– just enough to provide balance. AleSmith Wee Heavy is a wonderful interpretation of this traditional Scotch style.
Deep mahogany color with nice tan head. Rich, toasty, malty aroma and flavor with a faint touch of smokiness. A tinge of hops provides the perfect balance to the maltiness. Full-bodied, smooth and warming.
Multiple awards, including Silver in its category at the Chicago Real Ale Festival and the World Beer Championships, and Brewers' Choice at the San Diego Strong Ales Festival (first beer ever to win both in the sameyear). Great American Beer Festival 2004 Bronze, Great American Beer Festival 2005 Silver.
