William Wallace

Rating: 3.45

Time for yet another beer from one of my most frequently reviewed breweries, Bridge of Allan. This is my first from them in a few months, I think Lomand Gold was the last back in July, so this was is long overdue. William Wallace is a bottle I’ve been flirting with buying for a few weeks now but for whatever reason it was only a couple of days ago I picked this one up and am reviewing it now. It seems to be a fairly common beer in my area and is available in either 330 or 500ml bottles in most supermarkets and I assume it wouldn’t be too difficult to find on cask either and you can usually find it on special offer in one supermarket at any given time. Now to see if it was picking up in the first place.

Appearance (3/5): A reddish copper colour that is quite still looking and forms a thin, soapy lacing around the top of the glass.
Aroma (7/10): Quite malty smelling with some caramel and a far bit of toffee. It is rather sweet smelling with some brown sugar and some dark fruits.
Taste (7/10): Similar to the smell with a strong, sweet malt taste up front some background caramel and even lighter toffee. Not a whole lot else going on here but it is a nice tasting beer.
Palate (4/5): Medium bodied and quite smooth with nice, mild carbonation. It is a little dry towards the end but not overly.

Overall (13/20): A pretty nice beer and a good example of the style, it is fairly sweet & goes down well. It’s not an outstanding beer but a nice enjoyable drink none the less.
