Pours a dark amber rose color with a decent one to two finger head that lasts.
Smells like beer, not being funny, smells like a beer should smell. A solid aroma that has hints of fruit, caramel and hops.
Taste: A very balanced beer. Goes well with meals or standing alone. I would say the taste is not complex but has layers. Malts without coffee or chocolate and a good hop finish without a bite.
Good carbonation without distracting from taste. Not thick like a porter or stout can be but definitely not flat/light/watery.
Easy to drink as an end of day thirst quencher, session beer or sip and enjoy with summertime grilled food .
Can you tell I like this ALE?

I think I found one of my new favourite beers.
Pours a clear coppery color with about a finger of two of solid just slightly off-colour head with a decent retention.
The aroma is extra nice. Some malts, some fruity smell but mostly biscuity and nutty notes, easily picked up by the nose.
The taste is likewise, amazing. Starts sweet and is followed by nice biscuity body, slight bitterness towards the end, and finishes with a nice spicy finish.
Easily drinkable, smooth, delicious. Just great.

Belhaven Scottish Ale brewed by Belhaven Brewery Company Ltd.This brew pours out dark amber color or light brown. With 3 shades of brown as the brew sits.It like this brew has 2 heads one fades away. The head is thick, creamy, and white. The smell is rich with flavor. I smell
tobacco and raisins. I'm not saying that is a bad thing. The taste is sweet- but bitter. Nothing overpowering ,but it has a bitter aftertaste. This brew is something I would get again if I was having a nice dinner. I'm giving this brew a 3.75 out of 5.
Serving type: nitro-can
