3.78/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
I dilligently followed the instructions on the back, letting it chill for at lease 3 hours. I pour a 440ml draught can into my sam smith pint glass
A - well, with all draught/nitro cans it is another perfect pour with a perfect one finger creamy cream colored head. retention is excelent. the body is a dark scotch color, like a cask strength whiskey.
S - an elegant malty sweetness, with some grainy element. there is a bit of mustiness that I do not know whether it is yeast or if I am confusing it with a metallic scent, which would be the height of stupidity.
T - initially there is a slight bitterness on the tongue, not too terribly complicated. the finish has some sweetness from the malts and a pinch of alcohol with continued bitterness. after taste is a sharp downward gradient of loosing flavour,it starts out as malts and then goes into obscurity, very quickly. only leaving a lingering sweetness.
MF&D - I could have used some more carbonation and viscosity to make this beer a bit beefier. but hey, I could also chug this untill ill. a very refreshing and easy to drink grew. finally, a nitro with some freakin body to it!
Serving type: nitro-can

4.35/5 rDev +14.5%

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.
