I havent made one recently but the Scottish and Irish beers are my favorite. They are malty beers with little hops flavor or aroma. The IBUs are in the low range starting out at about 10 for the 60/ and maxing out at about 35 for a Strong Scotch Ale (barley wine territory OG's). They always have a bit of roasted barley in them and sometimes a bit of crystal or peat smoked malt also.

If I was going to try to describe it to you I would tell you to think the exact opposite of a IPA.

Yup, I knew that much...just never bothered to find out the history behind the beer.

Actually, this thread has inspired me to try my hand at a Scottish ale, myself. I'm a big fan of strong, malty, lightly hopped ales. Has anyone brewed Midwest's kit? Is it good? They list the ingredients on their site, so I could easily come up with an AG variant. Or, does anyone have a good AG recipe they care to share?

BTW, I think I'll call it "Slash Dash," "Eighty Over Naught," or something equally sarcastic.
