THIS IS A REALLY EXCELLENT PINT AS SAMPLED IN THE JAMES YOUNG BATHGATE. VERY PALE APPEARANCE, LOVELY BITTER FLAVOUR, NICE HOPPY AROMA, AND AN EXCELLENT FLAVOUR. WENT DOWN A TREAT. HOPE TO SAMPLE MORE LATER!

Cask conditioned at the 32nd Cambridge Beer Festival, gravity dispense. Golden colour, moderate natural carbonation. Lovely INTENSE hoppy aroma - fruits (citrus), honey, flowers. Flavour is extremely pleasant and well balanced with a citrussy hoppiness throughout. One of the best session beers I’ve had.

One of the best Scottish ales. A summer ale that has a pretty good flavour.

[cask at the Blue Blazer, Edinburgh] Cairngorm’s flagship beer, Trade Winds outsells all of their other beers several times over. The simple reason for this is that it’s fantastic - Perle hops combine with dried elderflower to give tremendously fruity, almost tropical flavours. Extremely well-balanced aftertaste – slight fruity sweetness mixing with the hop bitterness. Some people look down on cask ‘session beer’ as being unadventurous and without merit. It’s their loss  200th rating

Fumbling for superlatives...one of the most delectable specimens It’s been my pleasure to sample recently. Rarely re-order the same beer of an evening, but had to make an exception for this. Hazy straw settling into clear gold. Creamy white froth. Spicy hops, vanilla, honey, bread. Beautifully balanced ale.

Cask at Blackfriars Inverness. When I first tasted this I noted its crispness, with a good healthy amount of citrus flavours. Nice light gold appearance.

Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy straw colour. Orangey nose with bready yeast behind. Dry, minerally and grassy. Freshly hoppy and slim bodied, soft and pleasant. Growing late bitterness with resiny undertones. Top stuff!
