Renaissance Enlightenment Series Scotch on Rye
Country: New Zealand
Brewery: Renaissance Brewing
Style: Scotch Ale
Format: 500ml Bottle
We have been frequently asked to make a big malty beer that is lower in alcohol than a Scotch Ale so we went to the source and brewed another Scottish style, the 70/- Ale.
The 70/- is malty and satisfying without too much kick. Oh, and we brewed this one with Rye because...Rye! We also used oats and wheat in the mash for reasons relating to flavour and mouth-feel. After fermentation we went a bit further and oak aged a portion of it which we then back blended into the final beer, this was to add a subtle (Hey! We can be subtle!) note of complexity and depth to the final beer.
