COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
80 Shilling is Belhaven’s classic, hand-pulled, cask-conditioned ale - just like great great great grandpa would have had. It has a classic red appearance in the glass, rich and smooth. An Austrian Emperor once described 80/- as ’the burgundy of Scotland’. Not sure how many he’d had, but the man clearly had taste.

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2008
Dark amber-brown half pint at local beer festival. Mouthfeel is very watery, tastes a little of malt but seems to have very little in the way of flavours. Not particularly enjoyable.

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 12, 2008
0,5 l bottle and 3,9% ABV. Nice appearance with reddish color and a lacing small head. Excellent fruity aroma- orange, some wild strawberry. The flavour is complex, oily, fruity with roasted malt and good hop, balanced carbonation. I will buy more and more ales, i like the top fermented beers! Caledonia pub too...
