Pure Gallus Scottish Pale Ale (ABV 5.5%) from Black Wolf Brewery
Bought at Aldi for £1.49 for 330ml
- Pours with a foamy head that is still evident towards the bottom of the glass.
- Dark amber in colour with no haziness.
- Citrus and pine notes on the nose with burnt caramel in the background.
- Medium carbonation.
- Bitter orange marmalade flavours on the initial taste that are replaced by notes of apricot before a palate cleansing grapefruit bitter finish.
I've written previously about Black Wolf Brewery with Tundra being one of my favourite wheat beers but I've always felt that the Stirling Brewery is a bit hit and miss. That said, Pure Gallus was right up my street. A beer that delivered huge flavour from the first sip to the last. Definitely one that I'll be stocking up on, a very good Scottish twist on the traditional IPA.
