3.76/5 rDev -1.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
16 oz can poured into a nonic pint glass. I had to salvage this one after it fell and sprung a leak - we'll see how it's held up...
A: Pours a orange copper color with moderate clarity. The head is a one finger heavy cream shade. In true nitro-can fashion, it retains beautifully with a wondrous texture.
S: Not as muted as I come to expect from the serving style. There are lots of dark fruits, some lighter fruits, chocolate, caramel, cream, and even a touch of hops.
T: The flavor profile introduces both a smoky and even a leathery dimension to things. The mustiness works pretty well with its fruity, caramel-laden flavor profile. A hint of leafy, herbal hops really finish things well. Surprisingly, it even has a bit of depth to it.
M: A bit on the watery side, as expected. Despite that, there's a good mixture of creaminess and crisp, palate-clearing dryness. The lack of carbonation fits the mouthfeel qualities well.
O: This would make a good everyday drinker. It's definitely the most interesting nitro-can beer I've ever had before.
Serving type: nitro-can

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
