12 oz bottle. Poured in a glass. Medium head, dissipates in a minute or two. Dark amber color. Smell of light flowers or herbs. Malty taste with trace of toasted nuts. Leaves an earthy oak aftertaste.

Served from tap in a shaker pint glass at Duke of Perth.


Bachelor Party-Palooza 2014 (Part 1) believes that when in a Scottish-style pub, do as the Scots do and drink up some Belhaven, namely the Scottish Ale. This stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises sweet biscuit, light powdered sugar, mild grass, light flowers, toasted caramel, and hard water. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a tiny twinge of vague fruit, this time more powerful than in the Lager, but still barely there. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a nice malty British ale, one that went pretty well with the chips.
