3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crystal golden colour with a full thick whippy glossy white head which goes thle distance. Well balanced medium malty body with well integrated bitterness which may not be as clean as the best in it’s class but still deliversdrecent hop for the money.
Easily the best Pilsner produced in Scotland at the moment.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a slightly cloudy yellow straw colour with a white frothy head and some broken lace. The aroma is fruity, but a little weak. The flavour is medium bitter, slightly buttery a little citrusy and ever so slightly sour on the palate. A highly drinkable pilsner and quite a find.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle 3.9% ABV from Tesco.
Delicious and refreshing light pils with a hoppy bitterness, nice bite and lasting butterscotch/barley sugar aftertaste.
Along with Schiehallion and Black Isle Blonde, a real competitor for the Scottish lager crown.
Incidentally, my label was dark blue and had dropped the "highland". I’m assuming this is a subtle rebranding and not a seperate brew?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle from Gordon and MacPhail. Pours golden and hazy with a nice head. The nose has citrus, probably lemon zest, and this is against a wheaten bread malt profile. The taste has more wheaten with lemon zest, then a nettley finish. The palate is light to medium in body and texture with a refreshing and persistent hop finish. Overall, a good beer which I would describe as more like a Golden Ale than a Pils in style.

Aroma is rather typical to golden ale with hops, grainy malt and hay. Flavour is hoppy with floral notes, some grain and hints of hay. A golden ale with pilsner twist.
