Robert the Bruce
Brewery: Three Floyds Brewing [Munster, Indiana, USA]
Style: Scottish Ale
Three Floyds Brewing is another Midwestern brewery that has been getting a lot of love in recent years. Robert the Bruce is one of their five year-round beers, and it is one of my personal favorites from them. This is a bold Scottish Ale with a lot of flavor.
Robert the Bruce is a dark brown beer, a little darker than you might expect. It offers very little head when poured into a glass, and it has a nice creamy texture. The beer has a good, strong taste. A little sweet with small hints of hops, with caramel being the most noticeable trait here. It’s a thick beer, but eminently drinkable.
This is a brew that will linger around after drinking, and it delivers a nice little kick at 7% ABV. When it comes to Midwestern Scottish Ales, I still prefer Founder’s Dirty Bastard, but Robert the Bruce is a damn good option just the same. If you’re a fan of this style of beer, you really ought to give it a try.
