The Aldi Spring Beer Festival is under way so I made my way along to my local store last week to stock up on a few bottles of craft beer for the weekend. Aldi's buyers have specially selected 35 different beers from a huge range craft brewers from across the country and after much deliberation, I made my way home with half a dozen beers that I've not tried before.
One of the six was Pure Gallus from Stirling based brewer, Black Wolf Brewery.

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.
