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.

Bottle, a nice bit of a caramel toffee taste. Smooth, but of spice aftertaste, nor bad.

pivnizub (9000) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle: Clear, light amber coloured, visible carbonation, stable medium-sized creamy off-White head; sweetish caramelly nose, a bit toasty, too, some subdued herbal hops detectable; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, relatively light bodied, but still pretty soft; lingering sweet toasty-nutty finish, balanced - surprise - by some subdued bittering hops. Nice and easy...

kiwianer (3362) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 12, 2014
The head is ok, body brown and clear. It smells interesting malty, hazelnut. The taste is malty interesting, less hoppy, nutty. OK

Kita (1165) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear amber brown color with medium creamy off-white head, fair lacing and flat visible carbonation. Aroma of caramel, toffee, biscuit malts, nuts, dried fruits and mild grassy hops. Taste starts with heavy sweet caramel and toffee, following is even sweeter nutty and fruity with almost no acidity, warming mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Medium to full body, syrupy texture and average carbonation in palate. Well brewed, but still not my favorite style...

Bottle 0,33L. Clear, dark copper colour with average, light brown, frothy head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramwl and nuts. Taste starts light acidic and finish light sweet. Inbetween I found some nutty taste and fruitiness. Medium body, watery texture and soft carbonation. OK beer, but nothing more.

lawman834 (228) - Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Nitro Can, poured with a thick foamy head, tons of lacing. Copper colored with a flowing carbonation from the nitro. Caramel Malt. Smooth, creamy, a little sweet and slight hop bite to the finish. It is a very drinkable and balanced brew as a Scottish Ale should be.

bnwokedi89 (44) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Very strong aroma, nutty, toasty, and roasted malt smell. Pours into a pint glass with a thick head at the top of the beer. Dark brown nutty color. Taste is very heavy with a nut based after taste. Creamy and thick finish. Not a favorite of mine.

Malts and hops have never tasted so well together. I love the "draught flow" quality to it as well.
