On draught at The Wenlock Arms. Deep red copper colour with a little offwhite head. Fruity aroma. Toffee flavours with good fruity hoppiness thrown in. Medium to light body. More harmonious than a wildcat, I guess.

Bansidhe (10) - Perth, SCOTLAND - APR 9, 2006
Cask @ The Counting House in Glasgow. Strong malt flavours, nice and dark but very drinkable considering the alcohol %. Aftertaste reminded me of candyfloss. The first cairngorm beer I’ve tried.

chriso (7373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2006
Bright bottled from cask (gravity dispense) at White Cliffs beer Festival, 2006. Drunk on the train on the way back to London. Attractive, burnished bronze colour. Unfortunately, there’s a massive butterscotch whack in the aroma, which obscures pretty much everything else. Better on the palate, with plenty of dark, chewy malt and touches of caramel. Ends up distinctly dry. Shame about the diacetyl.
