3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014-07-03. Lightly hazy red amber body with a small beige head. 3+ Aroma is boozy toffee and caramel malt. Flavour is similar, dry malt and lightly alcoholic caramel. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Surprising amount of alcohol presence for a relatively low strength. Enjoyable. Bottle as Highland Gold which were told is the same as the Autumn Nuts at Cairngorm brewery, Aviemore

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from the brewery shop.
Large bubbly off white head, a little lacing. Body is clear amber. Nose is nuts, a little berries. Flavour is roast nuts, grass, a little hop bitterness on the finish. Aftertaste is a bit of vegetable, not so pleasant. Mouthfeel is decent, maybe a little thin, light carbonation. Not my favourite Cairngorm beer.

bottle. translucent amber, head goes quickly, good lacing. malty, nutty and bitter, but with a great fruit undertone - almost sour. nice hop wash on the finish. slightly on the thin side, could use a little more creaminess to the body. still, "mad decent".
