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.

330ml bottle shared with mr_h. Dark orange brown, not much head. Strong vegetable oaty malt aroma. Sweet oaty barley flavour. Bitter aftertaste. An old fashioned Scottish beer. Not really my thing.

I guess this stuff is now available in Scotland. Slightly floral and fruity smell nothing inoffensive or bad. Appearance is dark amber with a thin white head and lots of streaming bubbles. The beer is fairly thick and creamy on the palate and the flavour sticks in your mouth. Taste is nutty, slightly sweet caramel and dark fruit rounded off with medium hop bitterness. Overall, this is a very sessionable beer which goes down smoothly and I would gladly drink again.

superspak (3170) - Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2014
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 6/27/2013. Pours slightly cloudy reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, bread, pear, apple, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with balanced bready malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop notes; with decent strength. Taste of big caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, light nuttiness, light roast, herbal, grass, light pear/apple, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, brown bread, light roast, light nuttiness, light pear/apple, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate yeast fruitiness; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Scottish ale. Good balance and robustness of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate yeast fruitiness; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Copper, clear body with no head. Weak, caramel and earthy aroma. Sweet, with no bitterness taste. Nice mouthfeel: medium body with low carbonation. Nice, refreshing but nothing to remember.

ryanscourt (870) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Interesting. Nice mouth feel. Malt flavor but a bit different than expected. Lighter amber color and a little more zippy than smooth.

Large creamy off-white head and a clear brown body. Aroma of caramel, nuts and fruits. The taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter with a bitter finish. Oliy and sticky texture.
