A Scottish brewery unveiled its latest beer: Tactical Nuclear Penguin. It is 32 percent alcohol. That's many times stronger than a Budweiser, and almost as strong as whiskey. The brewer acknowledges criticism, but says customers are properly warned.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

A Scottish brewery unveiled its latest beer: Tactical Nuclear Penguin. The word nuclear is appropriate. It's 32 percent alcohol. That is many times stronger than a Budweiser, and almost as strong as whiskey. The Scottish brewers acknowledge criticism, but say they properly warn customers with the following label: This is an extremely strong beer. It should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance.

It's MORNING EDITION.
