2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml brown bottle with a BB date stamp of 28 Jan. 2016. Consumed at the end of April 2015 in Largoward, Scotland.
Dark red-brown body has a decent head and leaves sticky lacing. Unusual floral-spicy aroma. The flavor is also unexpected, suggesting wild yeast or bacteria in Wildcat. Complex, floral-fruity-spicy, but challenging flavor. No indication of this on the label’s description, so this may be a contaminated bottle. This seems most likely in the aftertaste, but this may just be a somewhat unfortunate mix of earthy-spicy hops. It is drinkable.

Deep red. Faint head. Little thin perhaps? Fruit to the fore. Mmmm what fruit? Yhink red berries , scottish gorse flavour etc. Ok. Nothing not to like and would take again. On other hand not special.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Asda. Deep red with light head. Aromas of toffee. Tastes of malt, with hints of fruit and hops. Surprisingly fizzy. Bitter aftertaste. A refreshing ale that would go well with crisps or nuts.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good feel in the mouth, refreshing. Nice balance of bitter flavours, slight licorice and a little sweetness. Nothing exciting here but its a drinkable beer and keeps a decent head. Sort of a heavy - stout mix.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Dark red colour with a small off white head. Very little aroma, maybe cereal and hops. A very pleasant taste maybe a little too much caramel in the flavour but only slightly. Nice beer, hard to beat it at £1.25 for 500ml (Asda).
