Color is a reddish copper, somewhat light and clear, nice fluffy off-white head about two fingers high and wonderful lacing and staying power.
Smell is faintly roasted malt and earthy somewhat musky, wet dirt or wet soil sense.
Taste is a bit smokey sweet malt with burnt or heavily roasted malt and deep caramel flavors that are not overpowering. Its very gentle and moderate in the bitterness and sweetness that follows through to a slight drying finish.
Feel is a touch silky smooth and sweet with a light-medium body thats pretty darn easy to drink.

Binny's Plainfield

I don't know why but this is my first go around with Belhaven's Scottish Ale. The widget gives this beer that wonderful cascade effect. After it settles there's a perfectly creamy two finger white head atop a clear copper body. The head will not fade on this one and it leaves great sheet lacing after each sip. A good looking beer for sure.

The smell is appetizing but a little on the faint side for my liking. There's notes of toffee and just a tiny touch of smokiness. There is also a nice balancing softly floral quality that I'm assuming is from the hop addition. Slightly minerally.

Flavor is right in line with the aroma. The most dominant maltiness is toffee and the smokiness is slightly more pronounced in the flavor than aroma. As this one continues to warm the flavor does come across slightly more bold and pronounced.

Super creamy mouthfeel with a coating feel. Semi dry finish with a lively tingle on the tip of the tongue. The widget gives this beer a great body.

An easy drinking Scottish ale. The good balance keeps it going down easy and the semi dryness keeps you wanting more.

For some reason this is the first time trying anything from Belhaven even though it's easily available. This is a quality Scotch ale that is a joy to drink on these cold evenings.
