So I brewed up a batch of Scottish ale on friday, it began fermenting in less than 24 hours. I've been smelling it though and it has a really sweet fruity smell that does not resemble beer in the slightest. It has mostly been in the upper range of the fermentation temperature for the yeast (the sticker thermometer on the carboy has read 68-70 for most of it, but now Im keeping it cooler at like 66 in hopes that that will help the smell) and Im wondering if my beer will turn out fine, or if it will be fruity, and if that possible fruity taste will be bad.
