Belhaven Scottish Ale

20110614:
Josh got the Belhaven Scottish Ale. I had a sip.

The Belhaven is to the left in the pint glass.

I wrote:"Josh's Belhaven Scottish Ale has a slight fruit smell. It's light and soft, and has a creamy finish. At Yard House, it is a Pub Cream Ale. They describe the category as Light, Toasted, and Creamy. Josh says the Boddingtons is clean and smooth, the Killkenny is like the Boddingtons, but citrusy. He thinks Belhaven is comparatively bitter with less of a creamy taste."
