144. Penobscot Bay Brewery Old Factory Whistle Scottish Ale

This is my third offering from Penobscot Bay and so far I have been impressed with this small brewery. This one was a bit of a disappointment though. Color is great with no head, not a lot of aroma but a bit of grain. When tasting the beer the first thing you notice is how thin it feels, almost watered down. It is easy to drink and does not taste bad but I really had hoped for more. Overall something I did not mind drinking but if I had my choice of offerings from Penobscot Bay Brewery this one would be on the bottom of the list.

Brewers Description: Old Factory Whistle, our signature ale, is patterned after red ales that have a rich Scottish heritage. This ale utilizes crystal, pale, chocolate and Munich malts with a dose of roasted barley resulting in a complex mixture of the toasty flavors of caramel malt and sweetness, and a classic rich red color. English Kent Golding hops add to the depth and help produce that pleasing balance
