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.

brokensail (9918) - 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.

500ml can (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Wooly aroma. Darm orange, widget head - splashed all over my hands as I opened the can - docking it a point for that. Mashy wooly taste, sweet. Bland and dead, but inoffensive.

Drake (7928) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Half liter clear bottle from Harris Teeter Barracks Charlottesville, opened 11/19/13. Pours a clear red-amber color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Caramel and tea aromas behind a heavy mask of skunkiness. The taste is caramel malts, earthy hops, mild raisin and chocolate. Medium bodied. 50th Scottish ale!

blankboy (5798) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a deep orange-amber with an average size semi-lasting frothy off-white head. Mild aroma of sweet bready malt, fruit, light vegetal notes and light grassy hops -- decent. Flavour of bready caramel malt, fruit, nuts and light grassy hops. Short, light bitter finish. Average bodied. Average beer, there’s nothing bad it’s just a bit dull.

12 ounce bottle from Barley and Hops. US version 5.2%. Pours a clear copper color with a large beige head. A sweet nutty and malty nose. A dry yeasty, caramel and massive earthy malt flavor. Some metal and coco-cola. Very nice. I’ve always liked this style.
