"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."

Clear, red beer with with an off-white bubbly head. Aroma is malty and fruity. The flavour has the same fruit and malt elements as the smell, with a touch of caramel but I was also getting a very slight zesty, orange hint in the flavour and especially in the backtaste, which gives it a more refreshing edge. Quite pleasant.

A great alternative to a draught bitter for those not able to stock it during the quiet Winter. The ale pours to a generous head and the first aromas are of sweet malt and bread yeast. The tastes are sweeter than expected from a pale ale and toasted and chocolate malt comes through. Nicely balanced with a hop bitterness that cannot be easily found in a bottle. Allows the consumption of a fair few in an evening without sticking to the palate. Carbonation is about right. Overall an enjoyable Scottish ale.

Bottle, over-priced, from a gift-shop in Aviemore. Pours clear brown, no head. Aromas are sweet toffee, light herbs. Taste is sweet too. Not a fan.

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 (738) - - 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.
