The Vikings did not have a particularly good reputation in Scotland for a long time. The predatory tribes reached the British Isles by sea and made the country unsafe from the eighth century. Now the men from the north are on the road again, but this time they have a completely different mission: The brewers of the Icelandic brewery Einök come with an offer of peace in their luggage. Wee Heavy is their interpretation of a Scottish ale and so good that it will not only take Scotland by storm.
The Scottish Ale is made with barley that is smoked over local birch wood. In addition to this Icelandic specialty, three other types of malt, the finest hops and a very special plant find their way into the kettle. Angelica was imported from Great Britain by the Vikings and was used as a medicinal plant and food. The white-flowering plant was said to have healing powers and flowers, stems, leaves and roots are still used in naturopathy today.
Wee Heavy seduces with a creamy head and the strong aroma of roasted malt as soon as it is poured. The first sip reveals a voluminous body with a velvety soft texture and a full-bodied variety of malts. Sun-ripened grain meets gently melting caramel and a touch of chocolate on the palate. Dominant smoky notes and a silky sweetness round off the play of aromas and make Wee Heavy a true culinary delight.
