Malty and hoppy, we at Belhaven love the classic Scottish Ale and we’ve been brewing it longer than any of the other beers we produce. Delivering a sweet, smooth and creamy finish, Scottish Ale has a stunning ruby colour in the glass. Magic.

Bottle from California Heights @ home. Pours a light amber color with a white head. Nose is slightly sweet with some caramel, bread, and fruity esters. A touch buttery. The flavor is nothing to write home about either. Bread, caramel, and some butter. Light fruity esters and water.

Pours clear light brown. Aroma is grassy with some nutty notes. A bit rancid smelling as well. Taste is astringent and vaguely nutty. Not that great.

Bottled, US (5.2%) version. Kind of smells like pot, carbonic acid, mushroom. Slightly sweet body, corny, stale, dull. Ashy and scummy. Not so good.

I got the draught version in a can. Little to on smell. It poured wonderfully though. As I poured it into the glass the it was a creamy color and slowly settled into a dark brown clear liquid. It was almost cascading. The head it formed was creamy and lasted until I was finished with the beer but sadly the flavor was very mild. The ale was like the head creamy all the way down. It was a very interesting drink to have and I would recomend to anybody watch it be poured.

12 ounce bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Aroma is mildly sweet, with light caramel. Light peat. Some toast, too. Not much else. Ok. Transparent amber body with a small, cream-colored head. Starts with a fair amount of malt sweetness, before this becomes a little husky and grainy in the middle. More toastiness. Finishes with a mild bitterness. Pretty straight-forward, and not too exciting.
