COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
bottle, US export version
Malty and hoppy, we at Belhaven love the classic Scottish Ale and weve been brewing it longer than any of the other beers we produce. Delivering a sweet, smooth and creamy finish, Scottish Ale has a stunning ruby colour in the glass. Magic.

Bleki (117) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Pours clear brown, with medium head, reduced very quickly to none. In aroma caramel, nuts and toasty notes. In taste medium sweet. Medium body, rather thin, than oily, average carbonation. Drinkable, but nothing beyond ordinary ale.

vyvvy (6055) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 10, 2015
Pours clear nut brown with a large white head. Smooth bready nutty malt, caramel, almost a lager roundedness and a bit of butterscotfch. It has a medium / light crisp body with snappy carbonation. The taste starts as a drier version of the aroma with more of a dry nuttiness and still plenty of butterscotch. There is also a bit of spicy hops. Nothing fancy here, but a nice easy drinking beer.

Belhaven Scottish Ale (US Version) -- Whats up with this US Version stuff? We want the beer you brew in Scotland. No detectable aroma rising from this beautiful reddish pour with a creamy white head. Taste is slightly malty but very mild. This beer is all about the mouthfeel, but that doesnt go very far when there is no taste. Its not a bad slug, but not real memorable.

nearbeer (5070) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2015
50 cl. Immediate aroma of toffee with some skunk and metal; think this one got a bit light-struck in the clear bottle. After the skunk fades I think I detect some earthy peat, toasted pecan and a bit of dark cherry. The beer is clear and has an aged-copper hue. Loose head of rocky bubbles settles to a small ring fairly quickly. Flavor is metal and skunk on the front, turning to dark cherry, walnut and earthy toffee in the middle. Lingering aftertaste of peaty caramel and toasted nut with the bitter pith is the best part of the beer. Light-medium body is smooth and watery with low carbonation and has a reasonable balance.

330 ml bottle. Amber orange color. Small clingy beige head. Sweet buttery brown sugar malt nose. Creamy mouthfeel with a soft nutty toffee palate. Smooth juicy malt finish. Tasty and quaffable.
