Wednesday night hoops brings the pivot point of the week and usually a recovery American craft beer. While icing my knees and ankles (old man-itis), I usually look for something light but will take any beer that I believe will help alleviate my sweat glands from their exhaustive work.
Wet Willy Scotch Ale by New England Brewing Company is nicely brewed Scottish Heavy Ale. This was a 2009 bottle with it aging gracefully. As expected the malts shine through with bread, toffee, and dark fruits.
In spite of being a big Scottish styled beer this really hit the spot on a post basketball cool down. Of course it strikes up thoughts of what this beer might taste like fresh as well as that a few more years of aging wouldn’t hurt this one. Enjoy!
