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.

IslandHaole (1258) - Misawa, JAPAN - MAY 24, 2017
Nitro can, the massive foamy head slowly dissipates revealing a clear copper colored brew with a creamy head. Has a bittersweet, dusty, slightly mineral scent. Sweet with hints of butterscotch candy, bread dough, earthy (peaty)? Pedestrian.

Jabic (563) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Nitro Can. Ar: Herbal, slightly astringent woody hops; light graininess. Ap: Amber-brown, clear; cascading nitro head, leaves a thick, creamy head. T: Rich and toasty, with a deep breadiness; medium sweetness with bready crust and faint light caramels; red apple and pineapple esters, at a medium-low intensity, mingle with some understated coffee; herbal and woody hops on the finish, with a very low bitterness. O: Medium body with a soft carbonation that creates a mouth-filling perception; finish is medium-dry. O: Very tasty sessionable brown ale; there is a lot of richness and flavor packed into this beer; the deep breadiness, soft carbonation, and well-integrated ester profile really create a solid, satisfying, and quaffable brown ale.
