Aye, very true... At 5.9% it's barely above a mild, def. not in the "warmer" class of brews...

Wow, weak mild... The style goes up to 4.5% (2.8-4.5%)... I guess it's all in how you view things. Still 5.9% is below the low end for a strong Scotch ale (6.5-10%)... So it's really a weak strong Scotch ale...

5.9 is stronger than the usual 5%, and just "Spiced ale" wouldn't fit on the banner very well.

I know it isn't "strong" per se, but it is what it is.
