Where to Dig Up More About This Beer

Bellhaven Brewing Company Ltd.
Spott Road
Dunbar, East Lothian Scotland
Est. 1719

Brain Damage Quotient = 5.2 % ABV

Postmortem Brew Review
Amber bodied color with ruby tones.
Virtually no aromas. Faint yeast smell.
Double forming head gives nearly three finger tan head that lasts.

Quarter inch head near bottom of glass.
Copious lacing covers the pint glass.
Full malt taste. Creamy sweet finish.
Medium bodied.   Creamy soft with a touch of hops in the finish. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Wonderful creamy smooth and sweet. "Magic" to quote Bellhaven.  I am inclined to agree.  The most magical part is how that ale keeps its head to the bottom of the glass.  My mustache mopped it up with each creamy sip.  I also enjoyed the Scotch taste the beer brings forward.

Scottish Ales are quickly becoming a favorite and this one is worth finding.  A great way to warm a winter's day.
