Mysan_brewing (60) - - APR 30, 2013
Smells sweet, almost like cotton candy with a hint of metal. Golden, clear color. Taste is almost missing, and the taste that is there is not anything special. A pilzner at best and I don't like pilzners... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark amber lager colour. Head retention poor on this pint. Low carb. Actually easily sunk. Mild orange bitterness. Dry palate in finish. Would take again for sure

blackradioboy (140) - SCOTLAND - AUG 7, 2015
Bottle from Asda (£1.50). A few years ago at the Scottish Beer Fest in Edinburgh, I had a pint of CG and it was one of the best beers I've ever had. This bottled version is quite the let-down - pretty watery and feeble in comparison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cairngorm Gold * Bottle. Pours cloudy gold, with a white head. * Aroma is herbs, malts, grass & caramel. * Palate is light body, low carbonation, very fine bubbles. * Taste is floral & honey but too grassy & metallic. * Finish is slightly drying & not metallic. * Golden continental style beer.
