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.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 500ml can (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Wooly aroma. Darm orange, widget head - splashed all over my hands as I opened the can - docking it a point for that. Mashy wooly taste, sweet. Bland and dead, but inoffensive.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn) (5:3:5:3:10=2.6)
Same beer. This time it’s a brown bottle rather a can with a widget. Extra point just for that. Still too slimy.

yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle. An almost clear one, copper colored and with a small, off-white head. The aroma is quite malty, in a nice way, with some toffee and prunes. Not much hoppyness kicking in. It’s smooth, full-bodied and semi-sweet on the palate, wtih roasted notes, toffee, prunes, raisins and some bitterness in the flavor. Long finish on the malty side, with quite a lot of dried fruits. Decent indeed, but a tad boring I think. 150711
