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.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 Cerveza con un aroma muy bueno. Color bastante oscuro, espuma muy leve y con un sabor a regaliz muy bueno.

Belhaven is definitely doing something in sync with my taste, this is again another straight good beer. Crisp, sharp, very easy to drink.

Get in ya! This is beautifully aromatic, looks great, and drinks properly nice. Malty as all heck all over.

I was a little disappointed in this beer as I expected it to be more hoppy but it did have a tinge of the wee heavy taste which I enjoy. Overall an OK craft.

Butelka 0,33 l. Piwo jest klarowne, ma ładny słodki aromat. W smaku jest pełne. Nawet smaczne.

(Bottle) Nice looking beer - clear ruddy brown with big dense white head. Nice aroma - toasty malt, nutty, caramel. Medium bodied, well carbonated, even frothy. Taste is fine, but rather unexciting - some nice malt, toasty and nutty with some gentle sweetness. Pleasant but not special.

Amber pour. Aroma is quite sweet and malty. Has a pronounced nuttiness and a clean malt driven profile. Some subtle esters but it's really the malt driving the bus here. Nice.

Very nice and enjoyable. Quite creamy and with the touch of the Belhaven's ales. Good in features and aroma.

Nutty with lots of aroma and taste. Interesting, recommend to try. I hope this is 75 characters long ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

While the version of Belhaven available to us in the states is probably not nearly as good as the traditional beers that can be enjoyed in the brewery's homeland, this brew is still pretty tasty. It pours dark amber with a light tan head. The nose and palate are non-complicated but pleasing. Fat malt character. Toasty, nutty, and mildly creamy. It's a straight-forward and non-fussy beer, though it does tend to be shamefully overpriced here in the U.S.
