Roslyn Beer

The other beer I got from the Roslyn Brewing Company was Roslyn Beer, a dark lager that complements the pale lager I reviewed previously.

The plan was to brew a Scotch ale (designed to tip the scales at something like 9% alcohol by volume) and then a second-runnings from that. We brought … Continue reading →
