Bottle, 5.2%. Spicy and nutty aroma. Clear chestnut colour. Good stable creamy off-white head. The flavour is a lot like the aroma. Spicy hop flavour, some nut, faintly sweet. Actually a lot like a not-so-sweet hvidtøl.

Bottle. Pours clear darkish amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of yeast and hops, with touches of malt and metal. Sweetish, malty flavour, with notes of fruit and caramel, and heavy touches of yeast and nuts. Sweet-sourish and slightly rough aftertaste. OK.

Belhaven Scottich Ale
"Rich Nutty Smooth"
den har en flot farve
en god duft
men et lavt skum
smagen er til den bitre side
ellers en god øl

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I guess this stuff is now available in Scotland. Slightly floral and fruity smell nothing inoffensive or bad. Appearance is dark amber with a thin white head and lots of streaming bubbles. The beer is fairly thick and creamy on the palate and the flavour sticks in your mouth. Taste is nutty, slightly sweet caramel and dark fruit rounded off with medium hop bitterness. Overall, this is a very sessionable beer which goes down smoothly and I would gladly drink again.
