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.

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.

From Lazy Dog. Pours a transparent amber with an insanely smooth cream colored head. Aroma is malty with a grassy/pine hint. Taste is very malty. Still that grass hint, but very subtle.

A clear golden orange pour. Big grainy malt aroma. Somewhat skunky but malty sweet nose. Smooth bodied, light caramel sweet malty. A bit skunky, tasty but mostly caramel malt sweetness with very little hops. Ok.

I think I found one of my new favourite beers. Pours a clear coppery color with about a finger of two of solid just slightly off-colour head with a decent retention. The aroma is extra nice. Some malts, some fruity smell but mostly biscuity and nutty notes, easily picked up by the nose. The taste is likewise, amazing. Starts sweet and is followed by nice biscuity body, slight bitterness towards the end, and finishes with a nice spicy finish. Easily drinkable, smooth, delicious. Just great.

Copper colored with a big foamy head. Smells like bitter caramel. Tastes like honey and caramel and is very bitter. Earthy finish.
