Daisen G Scottish Ale 大山GスコティッシュエールDaisen G Scottish Ale Aroma and Taste

Daisen G Scottish Ale poured out a hazy dark brown colour and had a strong caramel bready nose to it. There was also a residual roasted grain to it once it had warmed up – and if you’re drinking Daisen G Scottish Ale cold then you’re going to miss out on A LOT of the aromas and flavours.

The body was all malts, with no hop bitterness or flavour to Daisen G Scottish Ale. The body was thinner and more watery than I expected, which meant the boldness of the flavours couldn’t come through. The flavours felt muted with some caramel and grain coming through before being washed away.

Daisen G Scottish Ale The Bottom Line

For a brewery that usually produces some good beers, Daisen G Scottish Ale was a disappointment.
