My favorite scotch ale was McEwan's Scotch Ale. They stopped making it for a while, but somebody else is making it now. Anyway, it had a noticeable flavor of caramelization. Not sure how they got it in there, but I like it.As DBhomebrew says do yourself a favor and go search the blog Shut Up About Barclay Perkins. better yet, buy Ron's book Scotland! II. It is loaded with recipes and information that will dispel all the myths like the one that suggests Scottish brewers boiled for long periods of time or that they somehow caramelized their wort. Or perhaps the worse myth ever that they used peat smoked malt. They did not.
