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.

3.1
Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) 3.9% ABV in my version. Neat, clear, dark amber with a handsome, thick, creamy off-white head that leaves some pretty lacing. Malty aroma with a wee hint of smoke. Very light-bodied but with heaps of flavours, lovely malty, roasted notes and a smoky touch. Impressivily full-flavoured for such a "small" beer. 101105
