This is a new experience for me. I can't say I've had much Scottish Ale (other than the standard nitro Belhaven can), but after St. Andrews, I'm sure I'll have more. This is a cloudy copper beer with decent head retention. The smell is wonderful - a sweet, flowery honey. The flavor is all about malt, which seems par for course with the style. There's more of a slight tartness than any discernible hop flavor. Honey and malt are predominant. Add some carbonation to that, and you've got a delicious beer. If this were in a nitro can, I'd pass. In the big brown bottle, you can't go wrong, as long as you like the style. I sure do.

2.65/5  rDev -31%

A - pours a deep copper color, 2 fingers of head, good retention a little over carbonated.

S - caramel, light notes of diacetyl, and skunkiness. Beer fermented too cold and did not ship well.

T - see smell, but with light to moderate notes of Scottish esters.

M - malt dominated with some light hoppiness. Light to moderate mouthfeel.

D - do not think I could finish a pint myself. Little disappointed that this beer has sullied the good name of belhaven.
