Spinnakers Keg Tosser Scotch Ale ReviewSpinnakers Gastro Brewpub has recently updated their label designs and I must say they look great. The new look is refined, artistic and adds an element of class to the Victoria based brewery’s beers on the shelf. The Keg Tosser is a Wee Heavy Scotch Ale that which is expected to pack a punch. Pouring a deep, chestnut brown colour, topped with a thin finger of head the Keg tosser is rather dark for the style. The smell is rich with a sweetness to it alongside an aroma that melds the notes of a smooth barley wine with that of a traditional scotch ale. Toasted malt, biscuit notes, caramel and the slightest of booze make up an intoxicating aroma. The flavour is lighter than the smell forecast with light biscuit notes, caramel sweetness and delicious toasted malts. Despite being a formidable 8.0% alcohol the flavour would create an estimate much lower than that. This Wee Heavy has an ironic sense to the name as the flavour is rather light and quite delicious but still packs a punch. The Keg Tosser is a delicious winter brew from Victoria BC’s Spinnaker’s Brewpub.
