Scottish Heritage Ale

This beer is apparently brewed each year, for the MCI Heritage Golf Classic PGA Tour event, that is held on Hilton Head Island in April. It is usually tapped about one week before the event, and then lasts as long as it does afterwards. I drank two pints on the Saturday afternoon of the 2005 tournament on 04/16/05.

Looks and tastes much like a good quality Porter. Black appearance with ruby highlights and a lot of sweet malt flavors all over the place. Nice tan head with sticky lacing featuring. A very nice looking pint with a certain smokiness about it.

Maintains the relative lightness of body and a very smooth finish that the best Porters should have (HHB does describe this as a Scottish Ale).

One of the better offerings at HHB, unfortunately this is likely to be pretty difficult to get hold of outside a few weeks in the Spring each year.
