Three Floyd's Robert the Bruce
"A big malty body from chocolate and roasted malts, well balanced withjust the right combination of hops. Robust yet smooth, a true malt-lover's delight. AROMA: Full sweet malty nose, highlighting by roasted malt notes."
The first time I tried Robert the Bruce was at the Three Floyd's Brewpub on draft, and it was amazing. Every other time has been just as enjoyable, it actually makes me happier when drinking. I'm really happy that I tried this out at the brew pub since I'm typically not drawn to Scottish Ales, and if you're skittish on this type of Ale I'd recommend you try this.
Robert the Bruce is a smooth Scottish Ale, it has a hint of sweetness, is robust and somewhat malty but not overwhelming. It's red in color and smells good, supposedly it smells like malt, alcohol, and coffee, but all I'm smelling is pure greatness. After enjoying this beer, I'm interested in exploring similar ales of this variety.
