Mixed Ales

Mixed Ales was where we had to put so many great beers that represent an incredible range of styles that otherwise would have been in categories that just might have been too small to stand alone in the results. We see some red ales, a session, a gose, and some other classics. But coming out on top was McEwan’s Scotch Ale. From judge John Papavacilopoulos, “in the middle of this brown ale there was a deep burnt orange-red hue, surprising white frothy head with a decent amount of lacing. Malty bready notes mix with dark fruity esters and a cola like finish on the nose. Sweet candy start with hints of raisin and molasses and some faint minerality on the finish. The mouth feel is round and sticky with a viscosity that finished with a combination of malt and dry.” Doesn’t that sound good? Tom Firth
