Today we’re taking a look at our cask taps and some of our favourite drops to pull through them.
THE GOLF TAVERN HOUSE ALE, 4.1%
This session ale is one of our favourites, so much so that we stuck a badge on it and gave it its very own tap! Styled as a classic 80/- beer this dark and creamy beer gets its flavour from 5 different malts to give it hints of caramel and a soft hoppy finish. Flavourful but easy on the pallet, this beer lends itself to our food menu of hearty Scottish fare pairing nicely with our pie or chef’s soup of the day.
INVERALMOND OSSIAN ALE, 4.1%
Ossian Ale is one of the pillars of the Inveralmond Brewery, representing their famous take on pale, golden ales. Characterised by its hoppy, orange zest aromas and nutty full bodied taste this beer has been a firm Scottish favourite for many years. It sees its way to our taps frequently so keep an eye out if its one of your favourites too!
DEUCHARS IPA, 3.8%
One of Scotland’s most popular and highly decorated ales, Deuchars IPA takes pride of place next to our house ale. With a session friendly ABV of 3.8% and a long lasting, refreshing aftertaste of aromatic hops and zesty lemon this classic IPA can pair with our spicy chicken wings, peppery haggis or Cajun chicken Caesar salad. It’s also the beer of choice for our Golf Tavern Beer Battered Haddock!
THISTLY CROSS ‘WHISKY CASK’ CIDER, 6.9%
Not quite an ale (it’s a cider, obviously) and certainly not for the feint hearted, this bold beverage has a smooth, medium dry taste infused with hints of vanilla from the oak whisky barrels in which they mature. We recommend this to anyone looking for something unique in a cider market saturated with Swedish imports.
Interesting fact: The Glenglassaugh whisky barrels used by Thistly Cross are the same barrels I used to climb and play on as a kid, to the dismay of the distillery grounds keeper. Tom, GM.
