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.

foyle (370) - Wyoming, USA - APR 19, 2014
Poured from 440ml can into pint glass Appearance: pours a frothy, vigorous eggshell head which slowly settles with some delicate lacing. Color is a clear copper with little streaming carbonation. Aroma: whole wheat bread dough, yeast, floral and earthy hops. Mouthfeel: creamy, silky and light to medium bodied with a fairly wet finish. Flavor: a distinct nuttiness combines with caramel, medium roasted barley, and some pleasant herbal/earthy bitterness. Overall: very good, but the mouthfeel is a bit unusual.

joergen_wulff (8) - Taastrup, DENMARK - APR 9, 2016 does not count
This beer is nice, but not great. It is a good beer for eating, as it is mild. It has a nutty taste, but I would rather enjoy a brown ale, than the scottish ale. On the other hand it is to be preferred compared to most pils beers

ryecatcher (1237) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2016
On draught at The Pub (a British looking bar inside Cleveland Hopkins Airport) while waiting for my flight back to Chicago. Coppery pour, creamy off-white head. Nose is malt, piss, wet cardboard and a seawater aroma. Mouth is medium bodied, lightly creamy mouth feel (this was on nitro), mildly bitter, some caramel, grass, nutty notes, toast. Not a great beer by any measure, but easy to drink.

The label was very different from what’s pictured here. Very malty, sweet and creamy brew with a nice finish with hints of almond.
