COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

A full-bodied and malty ale with a rounded, smooth fruit palate and a tight, creamy head that laces all the way down the glass. Rich in colour with a smooth, creamy texture and a distinctively strong flavour.

This beer came in a bottle that had more beer than I could easily finish because of the taste. It was not bad, but I didn't enjoy it.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2003
Aroma is straight spicy hops. Nice golden copper hue, with a thick off-white head. Lots of spice and bitterness in the taste, with a touch a caramel. Smooth and easy to drink.

Not bad, but something I won't try again. Had a few light chocolatey flavors. Pretty sweet and malty. Don't bother.

beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2003
Ok Scottish Ale. Malty and smokey flavor. Finishes thin and mild for a Scottish ale.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2003
Light amber, medium off-white head, sweet malty nose with fruity notes. Mostly fruity flavor with a hint of smoke, but not much. The fruit seems a touch overripe. Fairly sweet. Nothing special.

Copper color, light head, caramel and candylike aroma. Nice mix of caramel and hops.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 25, 2003
Nice amber color with a creamy head that doesn't last. Aroma is slightly maltly. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. This would be a good beer to wash down a cheeseburger and french fries.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2003
This one pours a clear amber color with a small white head. Not much aroma, just a faint maltiness that tickles the nose. Medium body with medium carbonation, it has a light malty flavor all the way through with a touch of caramel and chocolate. The finish is slightly sweet with caramel. Not bad, but not quite as good as the regular Belhaven Scottish Ale or the Wee Heavy.

madsberg (11369) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 Bottled: Ruby coloured. Quickly diminishing head. Not particular much aroma. Vague notes of cocoa. Flavour is bland. Notes of chocolate. Not much going on in the aftertaste.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2003
This was a decent scottish ale. Amber in color with a lasting white head. Tasted somewhat metallic but still a decent beer.
