Unibroue — Raftman Amber Ale Brewed with Whisky Malt — 5.5%

Raftman pours with a generous tight eggshell-colored head, dissipating pretty quickly leaving little or no lacing behind. Made with whisky malt, this amber ale takes on the smoky fragrance and a hint of flavor of a nice highland Scotch trending to tart green apple and grass notes as it warms.

That this beer is so crisp and lively on the tongue owes to the Belgian styles that Quebec’s Unibroue is known for, a deadly combination if there ever was one. Luckily, Raftman is only 5.5% alcohol, making it a very sessionable brew.

Grade: B+
