Tasting: Belhaven Scottish Ale

Imported from Scotland, a 16 oz bottle

Tasting: Chilled to 50~60 degrees (f) from a pint glass.

Appearance: 3/3 dark reddish, you can barely see the tiny bubbles rising to the top.
Head: 3/3 Three fingers of light effervescence.
Aroma: 3/3 delightful blend of mild hops and malt.
Flavor: 3/3 A very nice blend of mild hops and malts, mellow, smooth, subtly nutty.
Mouth feel: 3/3 a great smooth feel, light carbonation, clean finish with a pleasant bitterness leaving you wanting more.
Overall: 3/3 Wow, I really liked this. It is going on the list of things I want to brew.
Buzz: 3/3 pleasant buzz after half-a-pint.

Nice to see your blog, especially since you seem so dedicated to the magical craft of brewing -- especially the research end of things. I came to your blog because you listed 'vizslas' as one of your interests -- hope we'll get to see some dogs (and more beer).

Come visit us. We're mostly vizslas, but you'll see some beer there, too.
