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.

Chalumeaux (689) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Poured from nitro can thanks Willrunforbeer. Dark caramel pour with a foamy white lingering uead. Aromas of plum raisin and caramel. Taste is somewhat flat with notes of sweet malt stone fruit and caramel. Not the best.

AirForceHops (5272) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 7, 2015
440 ml Nitro can. Amber color with lasting cascading head as it is poured. Doesn’t really have an aroma; old malts.

Well the nice thing it has going for it is the smooth creamy texture. Other then that, not much here in terms of flavor. Weak toffee, light grain, weak bitterness in a very thin body.

440mL nitro can. Time to finish my styles. Pours brown gold with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, fruity esters. Flavor is much the same. Very sweet and creamy.

jsporrer (310) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Pours a light brown caramel color with very thin head. Not much to say about this. Aroma was OK but nothing special. Body was thin and watery. Taste was sort of blah. It wasn’t horrible but not good enough to stand out in any way. Very ordinary.

Beachmaster (293) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle into a pint glass. pours a reddish brown, with a very small khaki head that rapidly fades. Nose is caramel and malt. Taste is malty, slightly sweet, with an odd metallic finish. Average at best.

BeerViking (3605) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2015
Now available in the UK, bottled as part of GK’s crafty range. Deep reddish brown with a thin head, dark invert sugar on the nose, plus a faint metallic musty note. Sweet and lightly roasty, with burnt sugar.

DraftDodger (726) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2015
Copenhagen 26/7 2015. 33 cl bottle from Rema 1000. Lion on a shield to frighten potential invaders away. Pours clear amber with white head. Disappears quickly. Aroma is sweetish with caramel, malts and nuts. Medium carbonation. Taste follows the nose. Light sweetness. Toffee, nuts and biscuits. Almost no bitterness around. If you are into sweet biscuits and Tea this is perfect.

alkolas510 (1025) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2015
Mörkbrun klar med vit skum. Doftar och smakar som de flesta engelska /skotska ale gör. Sött, maltigt med någon orenhet

witmac (30) - Rybnik, POLAND - JUL 13, 2015
Piwo o ładnej bursztynowej barwie. Piana opada dość szybko i zostaje z niej niewielki, utrzymujący się pierścień. Bardzo ładny aromat owoców (głównie brzoskwinie i rodzynki). W smaku wyczuwalne delikatne palone nuty, karmel i głównie owoce. Samo piwo wydaje się dość lekkie i przyjemne. Goryczka niska, Wysycenie średnie.
