There's a reason this brew has staying power.
MacLenny's Scottish Ale byBarley's Brewing Co.
Barley's Scottish ale is one of the most likable beers on the market. As one of the brewery's original offerings, it's served as a gateway for many imbibers (including the author) into craft beer. The brewers lightly toast the grains, so the beer ends up a copper color. It lands on the sweet side, but just barely so, mainly caramel and toffee. There's a reason this brew has been coaxing beer drinkers away from the yellow fizzy stuff for decades. -Nicholas Dekker
