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.

foyle (417) - Wyoming, USA - APR 19, 2014
Poured from 440ml can into pint glass Appearance: pours a frothy, vigorous eggshell head which slowly settles with some delicate lacing. Color is a clear copper with little streaming carbonation. Aroma: whole wheat bread dough, yeast, floral and earthy hops. Mouthfeel: creamy, silky and light to medium bodied with a fairly wet finish. Flavor: a distinct nuttiness combines with caramel, medium roasted barley, and some pleasant herbal/earthy bitterness. Overall: very good, but the mouthfeel is a bit unusual.

Jabic (537) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Nitro Can. Ar: Herbal, slightly astringent woody hops; light graininess. Ap: Amber-brown, clear; cascading nitro head, leaves a thick, creamy head. T: Rich and toasty, with a deep breadiness; medium sweetness with bready crust and faint light caramels; red apple and pineapple esters, at a medium-low intensity, mingle with some understated coffee; herbal and woody hops on the finish, with a very low bitterness. O: Medium body with a soft carbonation that creates a mouth-filling perception; finish is medium-dry. O: Very tasty sessionable brown ale; there is a lot of richness and flavor packed into this beer; the deep breadiness, soft carbonation, and well-integrated ester profile really create a solid, satisfying, and quaffable brown ale.
