COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
bottle, US export version
Malty and hoppy, we at Belhaven love the classic Scottish Ale and we’ve 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.

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Reviewed 3/1/13. 16 oz can poured into a nonic pint glass. I had to salvage this one after it fell and sprung a leak - we’ll see how it’s held up... A: Pours a orange copper color with moderate clarity. The head is a one finger heavy cream shade. In true nitro-can fashion, it retains beautifully with a wondrous texture. S: Not as muted as I come to expect from the serving style. There are lots of dark fruits, some lighter fruits, chocolate, caramel, cream, and even a touch of hops. T: The flavor profile introduces both a smoky and even a leathery dimension to things. The mustiness works pretty well with its fruity, caramel-laden flavor profile. A hint of leafy, herbal hops really finish things well. Surprisingly, it even has a bit of depth to it. M: A bit on the watery side, as expected. Despite that, there’s a good mixture of creaminess and crisp, palate-clearing dryness. The lack of carbonation fits the mouthfeel qualities well. O: This would make a good everyday drinker. It’s definitely the most interesting nitro-can beer I’ve ever had before. I wouldn’t touch the bottles, however.

Clear amber coloured, the foam very quickly disappears, malty, nutty aroma with roasted notes; flavor reminiscent of caramel. Tastes sweet with light bitter notes. Decent ale.

Grumpelmies (364) - GERMANY - NOV 12, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2017 Bottle. Copper/mahagony with a small head. Aroma of malts, caramel, a tiny hint of citrus fruits and metal. Taste is malts, caramel, nuts, biscuit and bread. Fruity hops in the aftertaste which almost feels boozy. Medium carbonation. Nice.

kryspin3 (155) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - NOV 4, 2017
Bursztynowe, klarowne, piana średnio obfita, drobne i średnie pęcherzyki, dość szybko się redukuje. W aromacie trochę skunks, karmel, toffi, słód, cukier, niezbyt mocny, ale wyraźnie ziołowy aromat, takie oregano. Trochę skórki od chleba. W smaku słodowe - nieco ciasteczkowe, nieco chlebowe, nieco przypieczonej skórki od chleba, nieco nawet orzechowe, nieco coli. Poza tym trochę karmelu, odrobina owocowych estrów. Słodkawe. Na finiszu lekki posmak chmielowy, bardziej ziemisty no i skunksowy. Goryczka bardzo niska. Raczej pełne. Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego.

Recommended to me by a friend living in Scotland. This probably doesn’t taste like the ale served in Scotland, but what we get is still great. A real workhorse of an ale that I could drink often and not tire of. No gimmicks, just a great tasting ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle. Copper colour with a white foam head leaving lacing. Dried fruits and caramel aroma. Taste is malty, bready, toffee, sweetish, with a blackcurrant hop note and some bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi-dry tangy bitter finish. Quite OK.

The aromatic skunk of a clear bottle, some earthy and caramel malts too. Pours a light amber, decent ivory colored head. Nice effervescence, caramel, roots, earth, an enjoyable sweetness. I could see a draft version being significantly better.

Piwo klarowne w kolorze brazowo - rubinowym nalewa sie z niezbyt trwala sredniopecherzykowa piana tworzac cienka warstwe. Aromat karmelowy, smakuje troche jak cola z podobnym wysyceniem i niska goryczka. Wodniste i slodkie.
