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.

Draught can. Sets up nicely. A bit of off funky spice and heavier malt. Get the creaminess from the nitro widget. Meh, not good couldn’t finish.

jsmerig (1490) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2016
Pours a clear mahogany brown with a frothy off white head. Malty aroma of raisins and plum. Predominantly malt at the start it quickly gives way to a hop presence which dries the palate more so than adding bitterness. Well balanced. A classic! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: relatively medium heavy caramel and an underscore of butterscotch, the aroma is pretty sweet. Appearance: copper color with a white sliver of head. Taste: definitely malt-centric and a touch on the sweeter side. Hops are there only offering support. Palate: Medium-body, Kind of creamy. Moderately sweet aftertaste

drjay44 (3408) - Salida, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2015
330 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, ivory head, with slight lacing, over a clear copper (SRM 14) body......nose is moderate toasted malts, with toffee/caramel notes, light plum, herbal hops, balance to the malts......taste is mildly sweet, with dried fruit notes, plum, raisin, finishing with mild herbal hop bitterness, balance to the malts.......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol. low carbonation. This is a rather light beer. It meets the style with malt dominating the hops, but it is not particularly interesting. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

anstei (1176) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 26, 2015
Bottle from Bierlieb. Generally a malty beer with a rather low carbonization and low bitterness. Nutty indeed, but there’s not much to discover. Rather plain.

PapaVillum (858) - Valby, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2015
Cognacfarvet Scottish Ale med pæn 2 cm stor offwhite skumkrone, som svinder til kant og overflade. Rolig og klar konsistens. Aroma af rugbrød, karamel, noget fjernt frugt af en art. Smagen er bittersød og ganske fin trods det relative alkoholindhold. Domineret af den anvendte karamelmalt. Udmærket balance. Middel fyldig krop med en karbonering på et middel niveau. Konsistensen er olieret og afslutningen bittersød og kort. En OK lille øl uden dikkedarer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, 33cl. Pours amber red colour with an moderate off-white head. Nutty malty aroma with some caramel, earthness, yeast and fruits to it. Sweety maltness in flavour, nutty creamy biscuits and toffee. Very low bitterness. Smooth and easy drinkable, but forgetable as well.
