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.

Reviewed 3/1/13. 16 oz can poured into a nonic pint glass. I had to salvage this one after it fell and sprung a leak - we’ll see how it’s held up... A: Pours a orange copper color with moderate clarity. The head is a one finger heavy cream shade. In true nitro-can fashion, it retains beautifully with a wondrous texture. S: Not as muted as I come to expect from the serving style. There are lots of dark fruits, some lighter fruits, chocolate, caramel, cream, and even a touch of hops. T: The flavor profile introduces both a smoky and even a leathery dimension to things. The mustiness works pretty well with its fruity, caramel-laden flavor profile. A hint of leafy, herbal hops really finish things well. Surprisingly, it even has a bit of depth to it. M: A bit on the watery side, as expected. Despite that, there’s a good mixture of creaminess and crisp, palate-clearing dryness. The lack of carbonation fits the mouthfeel qualities well. O: This would make a good everyday drinker. It’s definitely the most interesting nitro-can beer I’ve ever had before. I wouldn’t touch the bottles, however.

pours a clear copper with a creamy off white head. Aroma is malt, bread. The taste is quite pleasant. malty and semi-sweet. Just a hint of bitter kicks in and fades through the finish. Very drinkable. Good beer!

What a treat. Deep amber pour with thin off-white head. Smells of toast, fresh baked bread, and caramelizing sugar. Nose translates directly to tastes. Some nutty flavor joins the caramel, but finishes so cleanly with barely a residual sweetness lingering.

330ml bottle from B&M Bargains - Rich teak body, short-lived thin white head. Nose is malty, toffee, caramel and nuts. Hazelnuts I reckon. Taste is quite nice, bit bold flavours, lots of nuts in there. Quite nice.
