Traditional Scottish Ales Albannach
77A good, flavoursome, dark golden beer that could easily have become cloying in the finish but didn't.
Traditional Scottish Ales Albannach Scottish Blonde Beer
73A bright golden, tasty, organic beer, brewed like the other Albannach beers featured here by Traditional Scottish Ales in Stirling.
Traditional Scottish Ales Albannach Whisky Beer
80A rich orange-amber beer, aged in whisky casks. The finish is surprisingly dry.
Traditional Scottish Ales Ben Nevis 80/-Ale
78A full-flavoured 80/- that does the business. Traditional Scottish Ales is an amalgamation of three Scottish microbreweries: City of Stirling, Trossachs Craft and Bridge of Allan.
Traditional Scottish Ales Glencoe Wild Oat Stout
75The label says full bodied, but it drinks quite light for such a dark, malty beer. Very tasty though.
Traditional Scottish Ales Lade Inn Ladeback
78A good, tasty, deep-amber coloured beer with clean, fresh flavours.
Traditional Scottish Ales Lade Inn Ladeout
78An attractive red ale, with good, full flavours, all nicely balanced, but slightly too gassy perhaps?
Traditional Scottish Ales Lade Inn Waylade
78A very agreeable, substantial, golden session beer. Just a touch overcarbonated. All three of the Lade Inn beers featured in this issue are brewed at Traditional Scottish Ales.
Traditional Scottish Ales Lomond Gold
78An attractive, shiny-golden beer in a strikingly labelled bottle. Perhaps the alcohol shows through a little too obviously, but it's a good beer, substantial and enjoyable.
Traditional Scottish Ales Tullibardine 1488
86A quaffable beer for the strength with oak successfully playing second fiddle.
Traditional Scottish Ales William Wallace
78It's unusual to find such a malty beer that's so refreshing. A beer worthy of the name of arguably Scotland's greatest freedom fighter.
