Alba Scots Pine Ale

According to the label the spruce and pine sprigs were collected in May 1998. Best before the end of June 2006.

Attractive light red/amber pour, good carbonation and as a result decent head and a small amont of lacing.

Aroma is largely caramel malts, with a little nutty sweetness in there too. Taste reflects that, with the additional ingredients of sweetness and some floral character from the organic Pine additions.

Drinks well below it’s ABV, but a little too sweet even for my tastes (I like a good malty, sweet beer). The floral nature is a bit of a novelty but wears off pretty quickly. Not as good as the Heather Ale by the same brewer.
