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.

Cask - JDW, Canterbury. A dark mahogany with a fine beige head that never completely disappeared, leaving a layer thick enough for a fair lacing. Quite vinuous on the nose, also with red berries and roasted malt. Coffee, caramel and plummy red berry flavours with a dry roasted malt and alcohol finish. Thin to medium mouthfeel with a lasting dry bitterness and a mild throat warming sensation.
