"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."

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.

chinchill (2989) - South Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2015
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. O: disappointing.

shoestring (308) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2014
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 (130) - Barrhead, 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.

Rostosto (31) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 21, 2014
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 (282) - 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).
