Nice rich ale. Can definitely tell a difference from Scotland.

Nutty caramel aroma. Crisp clear brown body with a mild head to start but fades fairly quick. Caramel and nut noticeable in flavor too. Mild bitterness. Has a smooth texture and has a fairly clean finish.

This is, by far, my favorite ale. Except for the feel, it's the standard to which I compare all others.

I love Belhaven from a nitro can. It's one of my favorite beers. Smooth malty flavor with very little hop presence.

Good smooth taste, I was a little let down on feel, but due to where I got it from. If you like Yuengling with a Scottish ale twist, I definitely recommend.

From 01/29/15 notes. Picked up a 6er of this in Florida for ~$10. 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a deep reddish brown color with moderate carbonation evident and one inch of off white head. Nuts, caramel malts, roasted malts, bready malts, lightly sour in taste to me for some reason. Medium body and low to moderate carbonation.

Overall i thought this was ok, though there was something about the taste that seemed a little different/off. Not bad/infected, just a bit weird. Probably wouldn't buy it again.
