"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."

7/20 Amber coloured lager, notes of caramel. Pretty average. Taste a bit chemically. Disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Steven_B (131) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a lasting off white head. Aroma is of malts and some caramel. Taste is a bit watery but much the same as the aroma with a dry and slightly bitter finish. Nothing exciting going on here.

LazyPyro (570) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours an amber brown colour with a small but long lasting off-white head. Aroma of lightly roasted malts or coffee, fruity. Taste is also malty, the coffee/roasted malt flavours come through after and leave a bitter hop aftertaste.

330ml bottle. Pours clear chestnut/toffee brown with red tints and a two-three finger off white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, malt and some toffee. Taste is moderately sweet with a nice bitterness with caramel bready malt and toffee notes. Enjoyable ale.

thmsboyd (193) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle BBE: 28 Jul 2016. Cellar temp. Pours a clear, reddish chestnut brown body with small, tight, creamy tan head. The nose is malt-forward, medium-low intensity, with doughy granary loaf, flour and a hint of coffee. A medium-high toffee sweetness dominates on the tongue, with just a slight, subtle underlying bitterness. Full-medium bodied with a smooth texture, medium-low carbonation and a slightly cloying aftertaste. Not a bad offering from Cairngorm, but too sweet for my tastes.

Foerdifuxx (220) - Franconia, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2015
When poured into glas, the dark amber to hazelnut coloured beer produces a big, longlasting, off-white to brown head. Aromas of floral hops, caramel, raisins, plums and roast malt all together with a slightly alcoholic touch, almost ester-like. The taste ist overall a bit waterish. Now herbal and floral hops, wheat and a slightly bitter hoppy finish. Medium body, slick mouthfeel, soft carbonation.

Kind of a generic beer: aromas are toffee, floral and some fruit but nothing distinctive. Flavour is the same. Some sweetness, mouthfeel is a bit watery. OK session ale.
