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.

MiP (13848) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2014
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.
