Belhaven Best

From the Belhaven Brewery in Dundar, East Lothian, Scotland comes Belhaven Best, a nice golden-copper coloured ale. Sold in 440mL cans that contain a nitrogen widget, BB pours with a very dense, creamy head that has magnificent staying power. The alcohol content of this pub ale is a modest 4.8%.

BB has a biscuit-heavy aroma with coppery notes. It has a very smooth mouthfeel and a flavour that is malty, balanced against a hint of bitterness. Notable tastes are caramel, biscuit, and a whisper of copper.

Belhaven Best is a very smooth beer. In all honesty, I typically prefer my ales to have a rougher edge, but this stuff is all kinds of drinkable. I expect that it's a beer which would appeal to a wide audience.

Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
