A traditional Highland recipe, popular in Northern Scotland until the end of the 19th Century. This "Triple" style ale is spiced with sprigs of spruce and pine, harvested in the spring and brewed with only a small token handful of hops. Break out the goblets and pour with abandon. Rich, tawny and best enjoyed at room temperature.

From the drinkers of Alba

Style Suede Blucher LeatherNew Rockport Dress Blues Vicuna SuedeNew Purpose Castlerock SuedeCognac One of my favourite beers. Huge fan. I enjoy the pine flavour. This reminds me of Dog Fish Head, but without the outrageous price. I bought the Alba out at our local pub. It's true that at room temperature the taste improves.

– Jimmy

I normally drink Belgian beers and have tried the best that they have to offer and they are the best beers in the world, but Alba beat them all in my opinion. This is no finer ale!

– Mr A Brand

This beer is unique and wonderful, the flavour is rich and deep with a smooth drinkability and slightly delayed pine finish. I only had one as it was in the historical ales 4 pack. I serve it at the suggested temperature. A real winner!
