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.

DonGregorio (214) - POLAND - MAR 15, 2017
Bottle. Clear amber beer with small, quickly disappearing white head. Faint aroma of caramel, fruits and light cardboard. Taste is medium sweet and very light bitter: caramel, apple, plum. Body is light to medium, carbonation is soft. Ordinary, macro stuff.

To my surprise, this beer had a widget and is nitro. Aroma is caramel, sweet toffee, slightly metallic, pretty nice. Appearance is red amber, billowy light tan head, clear. Taste is light, light caramel, toasted malt, metallic, toffee, slight fruitiness, eh. Mouthfeel is viscous, medium body with soft nitro, caramel fruity metallic aftertaste. Overall, it had a lot of promise but fell flat.

Bottle. Brilliantly clear, light copper color. Off-white head, persists. Nutty, caramel aroma, malt forward balance, Brown sugar sweetness, no hops. Malty flavor, grainy, fairly smooth. Slight bitterness on the finish. Nice.

Bierdimpfe (612) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 26, 2017
Clear copper color with tons of glass clinging activity. Slightly creamy beige 2 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with faint legs. Flavors of walnuts, caramel, coffee, nutmeg, dark roasted grains like barley, raspberries, honey, herbal spices. Sugary bread feel with low sharpness, but spicy flowery hops. Slick oily medium body with soft crispy carbonation. Light to medium strength finish, lingering toffee feel with burnt malts and residual leafy hops. Quite tasty and pleasant. Good freshness and well balanced. Would be better with a smoother heavier body. Accessible while fully flavored. Overall high quality craft.

Sve je vie ljudi zainteresovano za neke nove stilove i vrste piva. Domaće pivare, pogotovo zanatske - oskudijevaju u kreativnosti ili kapacitetima pa su podrumi pića prinuđeni na uvoz. Banjalučka Frutela odnedavno ima u ponudi 15ak novih piva iz Britanije. Ovo je jedno od njih. kotski ejl nije nita revolucionarno. Neće nikoga posebno odueviti. Niko zbog ovog piva neće promijeniti svoje rang liste i stavove o najboljem pivu ali... ovo je pravo pivo! Pravi predstavnik vievjekovne pivarske tradicije sa Ostrva. Svega ima, ničega previe. Domaći kotski sladovi i domaći hmeljevi neće udariti svojim citrusnim ili nekim drugim aromama ali hoće biti jako prijatni i ugodni. Tijelo je potaman. Prisutno i dotjerano. Cijena ovog piva je nia od cijena domaćih zanatskih pivara. Praktično na pola puta između naih starih lagera bez mirisa i okusa i vrckavih Kabinetovih IPA. Kvalitet i uitak ispijanja ne zaostaje mnogo za njima. Preporuke!

Mindwarp (261) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Pours a reddish amber with no real head. Aroma is toasty malt. Taste of sweet malt almost candyish. This beer tastes better than it smells and overall I really like this ale.
