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.

Jamesthebrit (298) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Aroma. Hazelnut. Malty. A little astringent. Like ummmmm some kind of candy. Lemon drops maybe. Looks good. Filtered. Good head. Nice amber red. A very nice looking beer. Taste is light. Subtle grape note. Peaty. Wheaty. Malty. Dry so dry. Hops.... Not really any hop note. Maybe some coming through with a subtle bitterness. Palate is dry. Smooth. Light. Overall not a bad beer. I would put it at a light beer but a good light beer. Like Bette than new castle. Scotch ale notes are subtle. Solidly ok.

Very malty aroma: nuts, caramel, biscuit. Really enjoyable. The beer is reddish amber, clear and a little bit sparkling. Head is ok: white, but doesn’t last for too long. It’s very sweet with a little addition of hops’s flavour. Very soft, balanced taste with a subtle bitterness. Carbonation is lively but not excessive. I love it :)

pivnizub (9036) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle: Clear, light amber coloured, visible carbonation, stable medium-sized creamy off-White head; sweetish caramelly nose, a bit toasty, too, some subdued herbal hops detectable; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, relatively light bodied, but still pretty soft; lingering sweet toasty-nutty finish, balanced - surprise - by some subdued bittering hops. Nice and easy...
