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.

AndyW68 (1507) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Hazy copper with white head. Aroma of citrus and feet. Taste is musty and a little bitter. Not bad.

Bierdimpfe (587) - 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 (238) - 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.

hrabren (1121) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 19, 2017
0.33 l bottle from Vrutak, Zagreb. Beer tasting at Brnjas place. Thanks! Clear amber, small off-white head. Slight metallic, faint malts aroma. Sweet, some whiskey-like maltiness. Light body, medium carbonation, light creamy texture, light finish. Not good.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7300) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2017
Sampled on nitro draft at the Rivertowne Pub this beer poured a caramel brown color with a large creamy beige head that lingered and left incredible lacing. The aroma was sweetish and a bit toasty with honey, toffee and a bit of golden fruit. The flavor was sweet and malty with honey, toffee and faint golden fruit. Hint of tobacco underneath. Medium length finish. Medium body and smooth. Pleasant.
