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.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 Smell is remotely skunky with notes of sweet caramel. Flavor is almost similar to a porter or sweet stput. Pretty good.

berkshirejohn (4402) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2014
33cl bottle from Tesco’s, Cannonmills, Edinburgh. Deep amber with a billowing cream head; caramel aroma; sweet caramel taste with a touch of spice; and some warmth and nuttiness to the finish. Pleasant stuff.

If this wasn’t so expensive it would be my "go to" beer. It’s not the most flavorful beer, but there is nothing overpowering about any of the flavors. It’s not too hoppy, not too malty, not too bland - just a good beer to go to when nothing jumps out at you.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle, from Tesco, Kirkwall. Amber gold, thin but lasting white head and moderate condition. Biscuits and caramel with a hint of peppery spiciness in the nose. Full bodied and malty sweet in the mouth with hints of burnt toast and a gentle earthy hop bitterness, lingering toffee sweetness and peppery hop bitterness in the finish.

0.33l bottle. Dark copper color. Nutty, spicy, caramel, malty and toasted aroma. Taste is sweet with toasted malt and some hoppy spiciness. Medium bodied. Overall it’s really great and complex beer.

Bif (1392) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a decent head and spotty laving. Aroma of malt, nuts and bit of citrus. Taste of malt, caramel, bit of fruit and nut. Mild bitterness and a finish that is quite dry. Medium body, smooth snd creamy. Nice beer.

MiP (13529) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle, 5.2%. Spicy and nutty aroma. Clear chestnut colour. Good stable creamy off-white head. The flavour is a lot like the aroma. Spicy hop flavour, some nut, faintly sweet. Actually a lot like a not-so-sweet hvidtøl.

Bamsen78 (2986) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear darkish amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of yeast and hops, with touches of malt and metal. Sweetish, malty flavour, with notes of fruit and caramel, and heavy touches of yeast and nuts. Sweet-sourish and slightly rough aftertaste. OK.
