COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
bottle, US export version
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.

12 oz. bottle; I think I got it in some kind of sampler pack, maybe...? Roasty, malty, sweet, little bit of toffee. Wouldnt go out of my way to buy it, but its far from bad.

Light brown or caramel color with a medium white head. Malty caramel and toasty notes on the nose. Malty round palate and smooth finish. Rather insipid and low alcohol. Meh...

Bought as part of a winter mixer pack. Smells malty, sweet and smokey. Pours a brown red colour. Head disappears immediately. Taste is a little sweet, with smokey malts. Good carbonation for an ale. Goes down smooth with no aftertaste. Overall I was very happy with this beer. Would buy it again. MB The Beer "Bear"on

From the nitro can stamped L6125-17:08. As I pop it open the Nitro gas kicks in immediately. I pour it into the glass for a soft, and extremely foamy head over a handsome looking mahogany amber color. No special characters in the aroma. It is clean, sweet, caramel, and malty with a low to no hop profile. Typical for the style. The body is smooth, creamy, and around medium. The taste is sweet but it does not have the peat-moss characteristics typical of the style. Irt does have a lot of caramel malts and maybe some tobacco with a mildly clean finish. Tasty - but not one I would actively seek out.

It pours amber and has excellent clarity. It has a creamy off white head. It has a malty sweet aroma highlighted by the caramel and bread, There are also low flavors of butterscotch and pear. It has dominate flavors of caramel and bread. There are background light notes of butterscotch, pear, and hints of herbal. The balance is towards the malts. It has a moderate body with a creamy feel to the overall presentation, moderate-low bitterness, and moderate-low carbonation. Overall, this is a malt balance ale. It features the caramel and bread with other flavors and aromas in the background.

Butelka 330ml z sześciopaka. Pomarańczowa barwa wpadająca w brąz, piana biała, średnia.Orzechowe, trochę wędzonki i karmelu a w smaku słodkie, orzeżwiające ze słodko gorzkim finiszem. Taki przeciętniak.

Bottle, 33cL. @Naintr. Shared with my dad. A shining brown-orange clear beer with a medium white head ; medium retention. Nut, roast, light caramel, herb, sugar. Medium sweet, round, light dry bitter refreshing. Light to medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, sweet roasty finish. Overall, fair. Maybe too sugary in the end.

lesifflebiere (1747) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016
Rouge orange brillante, peu mousseuse, et prsentant un nez de sucre dorge et de bois. La bouche, mince et tonnamment dsaltrante, est sucre et noisette, avec un peu de baies rouges et de sucre dorge encore une fois. Savoureuse mais simple, cest une dlicieuse version de ce style trop rare en dehors des limites de lcosse. Frle la perfection dans son domaine.

Bought a 500 ml bottle on a recommendation from a beer friend. The color is an attractive golden red and the head is eggshell white that slowly dissolves. I smell malt and corn. I find the taste to be friendly, again a light maltiness, toffee-sweetness and biscuit, but not challenging. The wrap up is a smooth bitterness. Decent but I prefer more character to want to buy again.
