Bottle at Inverness airport. It pours clear deep brown with a decent off-white head. The nose is toasty grain, brown bread, caramel and dried fruits. The taste is bitter-sweet, malt driven, toasty grain, brown bread, nut, wood and light caramel with a dry finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Well rounded and very drinkable malty beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from the brewery shop.
Frothy off white nose, good lacing. Body is a gorgeous dark amber with a hint of ruby. Nose is sweet and nutty. Flavour is more of the same, a little bitterness on the finish but it doesn't last long. Mouthfeel is a little thin, medium carbonation. Decent but lacks the depth of some of the other Cairngorm brews.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, purchased @Meny Oslo City. A finger of shiny sand-colored head, covering a clear (as claimed) mahogny colored body. A slight acidic dark fruit nose, to some dryish toasted light caramelly malts. Body is light plus. Dryish, light diluted malt base. Subtle bread and caramel. A light earthy bitterness is lurking under. Short malty, subdued bitter finish. Overall, a pretty decent one. Would love to try it from well conditioned cask.

500ml bottle, trade with JohnRMurdoch. Frothy, beige, bubbly head. Clear mahogany coloured body. Laces nicely. Good looking, indeed. Slightly roasted malts on the nose, mid-sweet. Malt-accented taste with nuts and caramel followed by dried fruity, bitter ending. A fine version of the style (hotel room, Edinburgh 10.08.2013).
