This deliciously refreshing golden beer is made with honey from the heather covered moorlands of the Scottish Highlands. Pure and natural, it is cold filtered and unpasteurised for exceptional flavour.

Graham77 (233) - Glasgow, - MAR 8, 2014
The aroma is dominated by honey sweetness with background cereal. This is a very pleasant beer but not a style I would choose to drink to often due to the sweetness. It is definitely worth a try though.

Pours clear pale yellow. Small lacy white head. Hardly any aroma. Lively, hints of grapefruit. Honey comes through on the finish.

sarauckelman (174) - Heidelberg, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 26, 2014
Pale golden color, no head. Not much aroma. Watery palate, a bit sticky on the end. You can definitely taste the honey; it doens’t taste sweet like normal honey, but there’s a flavor in there that couldn’t be anything else. Not bad.

spacecube (806) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2014
500ml bottle, pours light golden brown with a white lasting head and carbonation, aroma is sweet malt, honey, citrus notes and cardboard. Finish is sweet and malty. OK, but not my thing.

downender (6245) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle from the Broadmead, Bristol Marks & Spencer branch as part of a 6 UK beers for £10 deal, which proved to be excellent value. Golden in colour, with a slight, white, head, and moderate carbonation. Easy drinking, sweetish, beer, with some floral hops, hint of honey and gentle finish. Fine.

davidtjm (332) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle from Marks and Spencer as Organic Scottish Beer. Gold pour, thin disappearing head, aroma is honey sweetness. Taste is malty, light hop bitterness, honey and a light bitter finish, light body and carbonation. Pleasant, worth trying

Philym (984) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Appearance: Clear golden with finger thick white head. Aroma: Toffee, honey note, dough, yeast, bread notes, fruity. Taste: Low/medium bitterness and sweetness with low sourness. Umami, which I think comes from the savoury yeasty notes. Palate: Thick fairly smooth texture, light body, average carbonation, abrupt dry, malty, toffee, yeasty finish with notes of honey. Comments: Good beer overall.

Bottle from Marks & Spencers in their own supermarket brand. Pale gold with a thin head. The honey offers a subtle drinkable sweetness and the ale has a medium bitterness. Malt nose.

Fruits, dough, honey, grass and a hint of spices in the aroma. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Light to medium body with a average carbonation. Overall a interesting and quite nice ale.
