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.

Best pint of Wildcat to be had in Glasgow was found in Tennents Bar - but sadly this is no longer the case! This is a review from here in September 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear dark mahogany red in colour with a thick creamy buff head. Strong aroma of buttery highland toffee long in intensity - similar to the "Caley" 80/ aroma but much more powerful. Rich robust creamy mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Mixed malts give a rich juicy maltloaf base of raisins, dates, molasses and soft highland toffee notes. There is a vague hint of hop resins in the short aftertaste but this is soon lost as malt returns in the long sweet finish. A popular beer from the Cairngorm portfolio and a regular in some of the Scottish JDW outlets.

Drunk cask in Edinburgh.
Can be invonsidtent but this time it has never been better.
Dark russett brown with a husky feral edge which marries perfectly with the sweeter core. Strong and aggressive.

Cask. Beautiful, dark amber colour, thick foaming, head. Fudge/butterscotch nose, red berries (raspberry), slight toastedness and some herbal hops. Medium sweet malt flavor with dark caramel, some sour yeasty sourness, medium bitterness in the finish. Soft, smooth, medium body with sticky bitter finish. Nice beer.
