Beer Of The Week: Two22 Reformation Scottish Ale

20161129_171529_hdrDepending on where you live, Two22 Brew is a bit of a ride, located deep in SE Aurora, but usually good for an adventurous/experimental beer or two. However on my most recent visit I steered away from experimental and tried the Reformation Scottish Ale which I wouldn’t call particularly adventurous, or even that typical of a Scottish. The beer showed the typical reddish-carmel color and had a Scottish-level ABV but lacked the sweeter malty and carmel flavors that I’m accustomed to in Scottish ales. What did come through loud & clear were the dark-roast malt flavors and an unusual bitterness, almost like an English-style mild or bitter. Overall I’d call the beer pleasant but lacking in the “Scottish” part of the ale
