3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Take a bow Belhaven. Fantastic example of a sweet, malty Scottish ale. Subtle herbs, slightly gassy, nice palate and autumnal bliss man. Drink and drink, its brilliant. Moreish and SIMPLE. Lovely feel in the mouth and balanced after taste. Unpretentious! Scottish ale at just about its best. About as untrendy as a walking stick but walking sticks are cool when held by the right person. Shit new label, old untrendy one was best. 500ml £1.25 in lidl! If this was in a wee bottle with a craft poncy label and charged at £2.50 you’d be swooning over it. Great simple beer!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle, 4,6 % ABV version. Clear amber body with a rather small off-white head. Light aroma mainly from caramel malt. Flavor is mainly caramel malt as well with hint of fruit and low bitterness. Did honestly not find any smoke as described by so many other old ratings. Recipe might have been changed during the last years? Medium body and a bit short in aftertaste. Pretty classic old style British bitter, no faults but too one-dimensional to be able to drink a lot of this.
