Craft Beer Tasting Notes

This Month's Mixed Case - November - Summer is here!

Ladies and gentlemen, please fasten your seatbelts, ensure that your tray table is in the upright
position, and while you’re at it, cracked a fresh brew. Why you may ask? Because we are about
to begin our descent into 2018 and man are we feeling good about it. It’s been a brew-tiful year
and we’re not done yet. Summer has socked us in the face with a massive heatwave that’s
roared across the country and we’ve put together a case to help with the burn. We’ve also
snuck in a few dark beers because even though it’s hot now, there’ll still be one or two chilly
nights to come.

Be sure to join us online this month @TastingLeague to share your beer adventures with our
crafty crew. Also, if you have any feedback or new beers ideas that you’d like to see in a
case then drop us a line. We’re always looking for the latest and greatest beers to share with
our fans. From all of us at the League of Beers.

Known for producing beers with strong, bold, and ‘in your face’ flavours, Fierce isn’t afraid to push the boundaries of what beer can and should be. Flavour, quality, and provenance, the three tenants of their ethos, have quickly propelled them to notoriety within the craft beer space, including being crowned Best New Brewery in Scotland 2017 by Ratebeer.com. Fierce also took Breakthrough Brewery of the Year at the 2017 Scottish Beer Awards along with Best Porter for Café Racer – a beer which went on to win the judges prize for Beer of the Year. Fierce’s unique line-up can be split into four categories – hoppy, fruit, dark and seasonals. Moose Mousse, their 4.5% abv chocolate milk stout, sits very happily in the dark category.

  • Chocolate Milk Stout
  • Velvety and smooth, yet light and easy drinking
  • Luxurious yet sessionable (No moose were harmed in the production of this beer.)
