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.

ciocanelu (1435) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAY 25, 2016
Medium amber color with off-white head. Aroma is really malt forward with nice caramel and dark sugar. Taste follows malt forward, definitely on the sweet side with a dark sugar note but also slightly hoppy and bitter on the finish, just to balance everything out. Body is quite light with the right amount of carbonation. Overall it’s an easy drinking, malt forward beer.

Echon (388) - Århus, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2016
Brown and medium-bodied. Fruity and malty aroma, with a light flavour of malt, spice and fruit. Moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Overall, the best part of this beer is the aroma. The taste is simply too light and a bit anonymous.

This beer is nice, but not great. It is a good beer for eating, as it is mild. It has a nutty taste, but I would rather enjoy a brown ale, than the scottish ale. On the other hand it is to be preferred compared to most pils beers

ryecatcher (1354) - 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.
