Finally, the spring is here, a month behind schedule. I enjoyed the season's first outdoor beer on the deck late this afternoon. The honor belonged to McEwan's Scotch Ale, a deep dark, quite flavorful and slightly sweet beer. Its alcohol content is 8%.
McEwan's is brewed by the Scottish Courage Limited, although their website refers to the company as the Scottish & Newcastle. They also brew one of my all time favorites, Newcastle Brown Ale.
