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.

Pours a light brown/golden color with a light head. Aromas include a touch of caramel and grains. Finish is malty and toasty. Overall, an easy drinking beer that is different from the hop heavy American beers.

ttoadee (927) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Clear bronze pour, quick white head. Nose is deep malt, a little smoke. More sweet than bitter. Middle is dark fruit, medium kilned malt, touch of peat. Finish comes back dry and lingering. That’ll do pig.

dbhenry (139) - El Paso, Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2015
This beer is distinguished by a pleasant malt taste. It is a little under-hopped, but its nice malt taste is worth the price. It is a nice amber color with a good head.

BlackHaddock (4867) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2015
330ml bottle from a local B&M bargains: nice to see the 5.2% version here in the UK especially at such a low price. Anyway this live rate is taking place on 16th June 2015: I poured the bottle into a Westmalle Chalice at home with the dog at my feet. Autumnal ruddy brown with a red hue to the body, the off white head had disappeared by the time I finished writing about it: only a wisp and collar left already. Malty nose and a malty sweet flavour. The malty molasses rule the whole show although this is not sickly or over sweet, just that they dominate the hop content throughout. Smooth body feel and a delight for my sweet tooth, just wish the head could have stayed around. I do like to sit and stare at my beer before attacking it and a lack of head retention always lets a beer down in my opinion.

rotaman14 (300) - Potsdam, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2015
5.2% version from a supermarket. Clear brown body, off-white head. Weak bready aroma. Taste is medium bitter, malty. Medium body, lively carbonation. Decent, but nothing mind-blowing.

EvanFriend (414) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Taste is caramel, pure and simple. Not much else there. Tastes like one of those caramel hard candies, but not as strong.

BeerInHeaven (248) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2015
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!
