Pacific Western Brewing – Scandal Organic Ale Review

The Scandal Brewing Ale is organic. It appears through the glass amber in colour and is a thin head that disperses quickly and without a trace. The aroma is strong of malt with a touch of caramel that adds sweetness. Tasting the beer it is lightly carbonated and tastes of a toasted caramel with a strong and defined malt base. The flavour is a bit on the harsh side and does not have the smoothness of a traditional craft amber ale. The stubby bottle is nice and I like the fact that this is organic but the flavour and price fall short of many comparable beers. This is not a bad tasting beer but there are alternatives with more to offer.
