About as bland as an IPA can get. Nothing worth mentioning. A poor try at the style Stay away. For a better scottish ale, try the McEwans or go with any American IPA like Rogues or Victory.

50 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Amber colour with a nice but fast disappearing head. Sweet, fruity and floral aroma. Light but tasty flavour with notes of fruitness and sweetness. Ends up very light and not speciel bitter.

Amberish with a decent head. Floral, sweet aroma and flavor. Pretty sweet, finishes slightly bitter... pretty tasty. I’d say it’s more of an IPA (as is in its name) than a bitter (as it’s listed). Flavorful and a good summertime brew.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
[Cask at Volunteers Arms, GBBF 2004] An orange beer with a fine but disappearing head. The aroma is quite flowery hoppy. The flavor is sweet malty with a slight note of fruit and also only a slight bitter end. A boring IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask, GBBF 2004. Gold, poor head and low condition. Good citric hoppy nose with hints of chalkiness, sweet malt and gentle hops in the mouth and a grainy finish with lingering hop bitterness.

Courtesy of Ungstrup at GBBF 2004. I was astonished to find that this is the first Belhaven beer I have rated. Standard copper session bitter colour. Sulphurous aroma, with a bit of floweriness hiding in the background. Dry and easy drinking Nothing really leaps out in the flavour department. Unexceptional. Cask.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
GBBF. Clean, dusty, cardboardy, dull session bitter of little character or interest. The phrase poor quality comes to mind.
