Black Friar

Categories: [ Beer/Inverlamond ]


“rustic earthy character, roasty, chocolaty flavours and typical fruity, spicy hints… It is unusually hoppy for a Scottish ale.”

Just another strong ale. Contains barley and wheat malts.

“Ossian, Son of Fingal, was a legendary 3rd century Scottish warrior. Sir Walter Scott wrote:

In this still glen, remote from men,
Sleeps Ossian, in the narrow glen.

… smooth, with distinct nutty tones and fruitiness. First Gold, Perle and Cascade hops create our unique spicy orange zesty aroma.”

Quite bitter, otherwise just another pale ale. Contains malted barley and malted wheat.

That's the 100th beer I have tasted and reported.

The Inverlamond Brewery Limited, Perth, Scotland. 4.1% alcohol.

Lia Fail

Categories: [ Beer/Inverlamond ]


“Lia Fail is Gaelic for Stone of Destiny, which for centuries was the coronation stone of the Kings of the Scots. Taken from its Perthshire home at Scone in 1296 by Edward I, it was finally returned to Edinburgh Castle in 1996. … A dark beer with a well balanced sweetness, malt anc chocolate tones. Challenger, Fuggles and Cascade hops produce a rich and spicy aroma with a balanced bitterness and full-bodied flavour.”

Quite sweet, only slightly bitter. Tastes of some kind of dried fruits, maybe, otherwise just another dark ale. Contains malted barley and malted wheat.

The Inverlamond Brewery Limited, Perth, Scotland. 4.7% alcohol.
