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.

thirstyrabbit (1065) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 3, 2013
Can; 5,2%. Gushing all over even though it was in fridge for days. Oh, it has nitro. I hate nitro. Light copper body with a white shaving cream head. Almost no aroma due to the airtight head. Yucky soapy mouthfeel. Can’t taste much but at least it doesn’t seem to be offending. No peat or smokiness detected. Poor.

rburrell89 (10) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Pours a light brown/golden color with a light head. Aromas include a touch of caramel and grains. Finish is malty and toasty. Overall, an easy drinking beer that is different from the hop heavy American beers.

RamyG4 (320) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours a light copper with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet grain-mostly corn, with not much else going on. Taste is medium sweet, finish is quite alcoholic for 5.2 %. Not a good beer.

brokensail (10527) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle from California Heights @ home. Pours a light amber color with a white head. Nose is slightly sweet with some caramel, bread, and fruity esters. A touch buttery. The flavor is nothing to write home about either. Bread, caramel, and some butter. Light fruity esters and water.

blipp (5826) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber with a thin head. Light malty, some faint sweetness, toast, and light earthy notes. Not awful.

MaxxDaddy (397) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Pours clear light brown. Aroma is grassy with some nutty notes. A bit rancid smelling as well. Taste is astringent and vaguely nutty. Not that great.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Bottled, US (5.2%) version. Kind of smells like pot, carbonic acid, mushroom. Slightly sweet body, corny, stale, dull. Ashy and scummy. Not so good.
