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.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2007
Cask at Old Bank, 24.02.07. Clear copper colour, perhaps with a hint of haziness, and a tiny, bubbly white head. Sweetish fruity aroma with grassy, earthy hops. Very mild strawberry-like flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Malt and hops i bitterish fruity aftertaste. Absolutely no carbonation, light to medium body, dry mouthfeel. Bit too watery, even for a real ale.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - FEB 24, 2007
Real ale at Angleterre, Helsinki. Tastes damn good and big, very hoppy and bitter but not too dry. As always with real ales, this one hasn’t got any carbonation (altho there is a small bubbly head) but the taste is good.
