"A smooth, deep amber coloured ale with a complex malt, fruit and hop flavour. Strong and distinctive like the powerful sleek Scottish Wildcat it is named after."

Oakes (11812) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2014
I actually saw one of these wild Highland cats in a field not far from Wick. Pretty cool - bigger than the average housecat. Light brown. Warm nutty nose. Quite nutty, sweet caramel finish.

Buongiorgio00 (581) - - JAN 10, 2014
Carattere prevalentemente maltato, con poca fantasia. Luppolatura leggera, discretamente ricca ma poco incisiva. Questo gatto selvatico è in relatà un dolce e inoffensivo micetto.

flying_pig (832) - SCOTLAND - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle (£1.59 from Sainsburys):
Light on the nose with some earthly hops and nice, roasted malts along with a touch of sweetness and some light grain. This is rounded off with some bitterness and a touch of toffee too.
A deep copper colour that is clear and topped with a two fingers tall, foamy white head that settles in a nice, thick looking dome shape.
Pretty much like the aroma with some earthy malts and hops plus a bit of bitterness that compliments the sweet malts. It is more bitter towards the end with a sort of burnt caramel/toffee taste as well.
Medium with moderate carbonation and an almost creamy, bitter feel to the beer with a touch of grain and a dry finish.

This looked great but started to fade after that, it had a nice body and a good creamy palate but it was lacking in both taste and smell with the beer relying too much on the earthy malts and hops taste.

rosenbergh (6103) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2013
500 ml bottle. L2053. BB 28/08/13. Hilpeä Hauki, Helsinki, Finland. Clear dark coppery brown colour with tiny light tan head. Wood, malt, nuts and dark fruits in aroma. Flavour is some raisin, dark fruits, some malt and mild hoppy bitterness. Not that interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
