COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
bottle, US export version
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.

ryecatcher (1290) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2016
On draught at The Pub (a British looking bar inside Cleveland Hopkins Airport) while waiting for my flight back to Chicago. Coppery pour, creamy off-white head. Nose is malt, piss, wet cardboard and a seawater aroma. Mouth is medium bodied, lightly creamy mouth feel (this was on nitro), mildly bitter, some caramel, grass, nutty notes, toast. Not a great beer by any measure, but easy to drink.

The label was very different from what’s pictured here. Very malty, sweet and creamy brew with a nice finish with hints of almond.

ManVsBeer (8039) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2016

TedE (844) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 16, 2016
330ml bottle into pint glass. 5.2%. Very faint malt nose. Copper coloured beer with two finger white head. Medium carbonation. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. A little zingy. A touch of alcohol in the abrupt finish but otherwise super easy drinking. Sweet grainy malty nectar.

Quick3Beers (808) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 5, 2016
First of this style, so not much to compare against. Pours a dark copper from a bottle. Fruity aroma, although I swear when I opened the bottle it kind of smelled like a dog fart. And I don’t have a dog. And I didn’t fart. Just sayin’. Sweet cookie like flavor, big effervescence like a soda. Good beer.

shoestring (347) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - MAR 5, 2016
Lovely sweet stout flavour for me. Mm fruity malty and dear area sugar in mouth. For me a lot better than weaker version. Extremely enjoyable and almost got five for palate and that would’ve boosted score . Rich and nutty indeed.bottle poured into bishops finger goblet.

From Carrefour Huelva. In Teku glass. Playing Millenium 2. Smells like a cheap industrial. Tastes a bit sour, like if contamined.
