...This typically Scottish ale has a roasted malt flavour balanced by a slight bitterness and a mild hop aroma, a real winter warmer. This beer is a brilliant accompaniment to Celtic food. 80 Shilling is named after the tax charged on a 54 gallon hogshead of beer between 4-5.5% alcohol in 19th Century Scotland.
