DETAILS

Hermitage's Scotch Ale, also known as a Wee Heavy, pours out a reddish-brown color with amber highlights, and a beige colored head. The aroma is malty, with toasted grain notes and a slightly nutty character. Maltopia‘s flavor is true to its name: malt forward, with a deep toasted flavor, slight caramel character, a hint of plum-like fruitiness, and a hop bitterness enough for balance. Moderately full bodied with medium-high carbonation, Maltopia has a dry finish that makes it surprisingly easy drinking.
