Caramel and raisins in the aroma and palate. Toffee and peat. Mildly tart, caramel finish. Great lael, bottle and ruddy ale appearance. Exceptional.

Absolutely beautiful crystal clear amber color. Heavy sweet malt aroma. The flavor is malty with some grass/dirt notes to it. The hops kick in just a little in the finish, leaving a dry tangy feel on the tongue. Well rounded beer. I likes...I likes.

Big malty aroma, some chocolate, slightly bitter finish. Surprisingly sweet for such a small beer. Not much detectable hops.

Has a nice malty taste with a bit of hoppiness coming through. Bit of peat in there also. Probably would taste even better after hitting out of the pot bunkers at St. Andrews!

Hops with a tangy taste. Not bad, but I wouldn’t buy it again.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear light copper. Thick, frothy off white head. Robust big bubbled carbonation. Light aroma of peat, mild soap and dry grass. Initially a tad fizzy but spunky with an earthy, tangy, peat smoked flavor. Medium light body. Fairly clean. Easy drinking, smooth. Long, tangy aftertaste. Fizziness settles out. Grassy, floral hop flavor appears and tries to snuff out the smoky flavor. Bone dry. Finishes tangy still, with a balanced rough edge and mild fruit skin flavor. Just an easy going, every day, session Scottish Ale. The name’s not bad either.

Rather bland, not much flavor going on, little to no head, decent brown color, seemed a bit watered down

Excellent beer. Definitley my favorite of the Belhaven brews. The only problem I have with this beer is that I have not been able to find it on tap anywhere.
