Deep malty taste, smooth texture and hoppy aroma

As you'd expect from our sister brewery, Lia Fail is a deliciously dark, robust and full bodied beer. Pale Ale malt, Dark Crystal malt and Chocolate malt are beautifully balanced by aromatic hops. The addition of Challenger, Cascade and Fuggles hops is a masterstroke. They add a sumptuous smoothness to this deliciously malty amber ale.

The Challenger hops bring fruity notes while the Cascade hops bring a classic bitterness. Meanwhile, the earthy and woody notes of Fuggles add to a rich and full-bodied experience. This flavoursome beer is well-balanced, offering satisfying sweetness and chocolate notes.

Lia Fail’s name itself is Gaelic for “Stone of Destiny”. It's named after the famous red sandstone block on which Scottish monarchs have been crowned for centuries. Another name for the stone is the ‘Stone of Scone’. This is a reference to its historic home of Scone Palace in Perthshire. The region has been the home of Inveralmond Brewery since it was founded, in 1997.

Best served...

Best served in an Inveralmond Brewery branded glass, Lia Fail is a decadent delight on its own. Its luxurious, dark chocolate notes mean that it also pairs perfectly with red meat. Or it can be the ideal silky smooth accompaniment to a few squares of high cocoa, dark chocolate.

Rich and warming, Lia Fail is available in 500ml bottles, which can be purchased in cases of x24.
