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.

This beer has a nice amber hue with an off white head. It has a slightly sweet malty aroma which I enjoyed. It is pretty light and easy to drink. Oddly there’s a bit of a herbal hoppy flavor, not at the front or back, but in the middle of the palate. I loved the taste and aroma of this beer; this is a 4 star beer if it has just a little more body. It is a little lighter than I prefer so I deducted half a star.

7/21/17. On tap at Molly MacPherson’s, Savannah, on nitro! It’s a Scottish restaurant, so I figured what the hell - didn’t know it was going to show up on nitro. Tasty stuff, though perhaps partially because of the time and place and my delicious plate of Scottish food. Amber pour with a wonderful cascading nitro head. Malty aroma, mild sweetness, caramel, bread, a hint of nuttiness. Good flavor, malty, caramel, bread, crackers, a hint of fruitiness. Tasty.

DrNosha (2347) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2017
Ich denke wir haben hier die US Version. Das Bier hat aber 5,2%. Helle Bernsteinfarbe, fester heller Schaum. Etwas Malz und Karamel in der Nase. Langweiler Geschmack. Süsse, Malz. Metallisch im Abgang. Enttäuschend.

nephirem (540) - CROATIA - JUL 5, 2017
5.2% ABV version. Bottle, 0.33l. Pours a clear amber color with small, short lasting white head. Smell is a bit like your average lager. Medium body with smooth and oily texture. Medium carbonation. Taste is balancing between bitter and sour, with sourness coming through mostly in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a bit dry. It is somewhat lacking in aroma department, not coming through good enough. Water / beer ratio should be reversed, so to speak. However, there are some hints of caramel, nuts and spices. A bit grassy aftertaste with a long and dry finish. Overall, a bit mediocre but not bad. Could be better, tho.
