McEwan's Scotch Ale

Beer score: 7.3
Web site: Heineken
I suggest this one only for experienced beer tasters. You need to sip this, much like you would brandy or a fine wine. The taste is extremely sweet, to the point of being overpowering at times. The texture is extremely heavy, almost to the point of being a stout. I have seen true beer snobs who were not able to finish one whole bottle of this ale because it is so rich. Still, I enjoy this beer quit well with a heavy meal like steak, or when I've had a few other beers beforehand which helps kill some of the strength. Not for the weak of stomach. From Scotland, of course. Comes from Scottish & Newcastle Breweries of Edinburgh, Scotland, which is now owned by the Heineken folks.
