Sprecher Pipers Scotch-Style Ale

Sprecher Brewing Co

USA

Sprecher is one of the great Wisconsin microbreweries, but despite it's Germanic name, they excel in making beers of all styles..Belgian, English, German, etc. This one is no exception. I almost wish I had a thistle glass when drinking this. It's a deceptive ale, it doesn't taste strong at first, but you feel the alcohol later. It's a malty ale, with a nice sweet, caramel-like flavor, with a smokey background. The hops are nicely balanced. I think this could be a good session ale, but the 8.3% abv would catch up to you very quickly.
