This month’s featured beer celebrates Scottish poet Robert Burns, owing its name to his famous line: “the best-laid plans o’ mice an’ men gang aft agley.” But don’t worry, lads, nothing went awry with this bottle.
Brewed in Pottstown, 40 miles up the Schuylkill northwest of Philly, this wee heavy ale falls pretty far to the malty end of the spectrum and features a mild roasty flavor with maybe some cherry notes. It’s a well-behaved bottle-conditioned beer, thin head and not excessively carbonated. All kilt and no claymore. Bless me bagpipes, it’s a good yin.
