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.

Cloudy dark amber with a thick creamy head. Caramel aroma. Both the flavor and aroma are one-note. Just tastes like canned beer. Drain pour,as far as I’m concerned.

Bottle from Market Street Wine Shop Downtown. Pours clear brown with a small off-white head. Smells of wet dog, glue, caramel malts. Taste is roasted nuts, caramel, light raisin. OK, but not creative.

I like this. A little sweetness, some of that cask mouthfeel. Been awhile since I had one of these. Decent.

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 (1412) - 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

Bottle at home. Clear copper with a small white head. Aroma medium malty (caramel, roasted) and hoppy. Flavor medium sweet and bitter, quite dry. Medium body.

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

Bottle split two ways. Copper pour with a frothy head. Notes of caramel, hazelnuts, vanilla, some syrup, honey and sweet toasted malts.

drjay44 (3162) - 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
