"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."

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.

Weefannybaws (105) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2014
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.

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.

Graham77 (281) - Cumbria, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
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).

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.
