Today’s will be very quick. Belhaven Scottish Ale very proudly asserts its Scottishness, from the thistle on the cap to the St Andrew’s cross to the blue of the bottle.
The beer had a lovely rusty colour and very little on the nose. But on sipping the beer was very pleasant, with a nice balance to it. It’s strength (5.2%) I didn’t really love through. That said, it remained somewhat anonymous in the end, which is why it would get no more than 6.5.
It’s lighter and less fizzy and less bitter. Or maybe perhaps I’m starting to like beer. I actually quite like that.
