Port City Tartan Ale 2013
Image by cizauskas
Tartan Ale, the late winter seasonal beer from Port City Brewing.
"Scottish beers in the 1800s were taxed on their strength, with the strong and better quality beers costing more. Customers developed the habit of asking for them by the tax ratings, or shilling names. The 80-shilling style was one of the stronger types that could be purchased, containing 4.0-5.5% alcohol.
The 80-shilling beers are traditionally malty, without much hop character, as hops did not grow in Scotland and were expensive to import. Our Tartan Ale is crafted by Head Brewer Jonathan Reeves. It has a deep, copper-color and is produced in the 80-shilling style. It offers a slightly fruity flavor that complements the luscious malty roast caramel flavor and faint hop aroma. The limited production Tartan Ale is our Spring Seasonal beer, with only one 90 barrel batch brewed."
5.0% alcohol-by-volume, 24 IBUs (International Bittering Units, a measure of the alpha acid content of the beer, derived from hops).
Malts: Halcyon Pale Ale Malt, Hugh Baird Pale Ale Malt, Crystal Matl, Caramalt, Roast Barley.
Halcyon is a low-yield floor-malted English malt, similar to Maris Otter, another such malt, but a bit less sweet than that and more biscuity in flavor. Fuggles is a ‘traditional’ British hop, adding woody and spicy flavor and aroma (as opposed to the citrusy character of U.S. hops).
