Experience the best of everything with """"""""the cream of Scottish beer"""""""". Its light creamy head with lacing to the bottom of the glass gives you a taste that’s refreshing and moreish with a hint of hop.

My first beer in Scotland. It looks nice, am er color qoth a cream colored head. Aroma has malt, and it is very light. Flavor is light as welll with a mineral, almost chemical quality. Bitter malt flavor. No notable hop presence. Truly the Cream Of Scottish Beer.

(Belhaven Best (Bottle and Keg)) Tap at Hotel and Folk Pub Terminus, Den Bosch, full pint. Amber coloured body, clear, tall and thick, creamy head on top, with very good retention. The aroma has light caramel, straw and some nice, light hoppy notes. Taste is of caramel and metal, straw, some hop presence too on the back, mildly bitter. Medium thin body. Decent bitter.

Pours orange-golden with a nice frothy head. Light, creamy, malty, full mouth with a pleasant hop finish. This is an extremely drinkable and refreshing and light beer.

Can @ Cirro’s Italian Restaurant, Callandar. Pours amber, creamy white head. Aroma is very light malt. Taste is smooth, creamy and extremely light. Almost tastes watery and even aerated. I like a nice bitter, but this is simply lacking in character. Can’t think of any situation where I’d willingly drink this again.

BeerNinjaUK (317) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2016
Backlog rating: Tried in the hotel in Lochaline on holiday, April 2016. Pint pours pale amber with creamy white head, leaving good lacing. Aroma slightly insipid citrus, biscuity, lacking depth. Thin and watery, pretty bland and flat.

Can from Copper and Oak Liquor Merchants 190516. Full bodied and quite creamy in the mouth but I’m just not all that fussed about the flavour. Looks quite good with a strong amber colour and a lush thick creamy head of foam. I can’t imagine drinking a lot of this beer as one pint is enough for me.

Perhaps 10-20 thousand pints of it from living in Scotland for 6 years. Perfectly fine, really easy drinking bitter that’s light on flavor but refreshing and pairs nicely with pies.

Deep amber creamy head. Sweet aroma flowed by sweet caramel malt flavour and very mild bitter balance. Decent easy drinking
