COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
80 Shilling is Belhaven’s classic, hand-pulled, cask-conditioned ale - just like great great great grandpa would have had. It has a classic red appearance in the glass, rich and smooth. An Austrian Emperor once described 80/- as ’the burgundy of Scotland’. Not sure how many he’d had, but the man clearly had taste.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2009
Cask at Old Bank, Turku. Hazy copper, pale foamy head. Mild old fruity aroma, sourish notes, some chocolatey nuttiness. Flavor has sourish ripe fruits, nuttiness, faint solvents, tangy hop bitterness in the bland finish. Light watery palate, almost flat. A weak, uninspired bitter.

Rune (11055) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2008
Cask, half pint, hand pulled at Cumberland Bar in Edinburgh. Dark amber body, covered by a filmy, white head. Smell of dark chocolate malts. The taste has got more of caramel malts to it than the aroma. Foamy mouthfeel. Easy going session beer [24.10.2008].
