Old Worthy

A while ago the new Old Worthy Brewing Co sent me a bottle of their (as yet) single product Old Worthy, described as a “Scottish Pale Ale.”

The beer is being contract brewed at the Isle of Skye brewery. I am told that the Isle of Skye plant is definitely staying open after the planned merger with Arran Brewery, so the beer’s production does not look to be in any danger.

I opened it with a few friends when we were sitting around tasting beers one night.

Subtle smoke, barbecue aroma, creamy and chewy with slight touches of butter, grass and manure. I rather liked it but nobody else in the group did.

Not chasing any of the current fashionable trends in beer and all the better for that.
