COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. The bottled version has a separate listing.
Brewed with lager malt and Hersbrücker and Challenger hops. Fermented with a lager yeast, but treated in every other way as a cask ale, save for a week or two of cool conditioning prior to release.
Named after the misty mountain near Pitlochry. Has won numerous awards as a cask conditioned beer, including three times gold winner at the Great British Beer Festival.

Cask at Counting House. Hazy pour, though it does clear. Golden colour and thick white head. Light citrus smell. Flavour is crisp, sour lemon, hops and as mentioned in other posts an almost earthy, smoky taste underneath all that too. Quite a creamy mouthfeel too. Nice, interesting lager.

Theydon_Bois (12178) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Gravity dispense at the Happy Man Spring BF ’15, 20/03/15. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is pale malt, lemon drizzle, grain husk, light bread notes. Taste comprises more soft bread tones, light citric, caramel, faint cereals. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying close with light citric hop bitterness. Refreshing stuff, solid for a cask lager.

shoestring (304) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - DEC 21, 2014
Cask at Ship Inn North Berwick. Lovely and smooth. Creamy mouthfeel. I agree with comment about subtle undertones of perhaps smoke. Few went down well

Surprisingly smokey aromatic undertones, given that this isn't a dark. Syrupy on the palate and quite smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Iznogud (1336) - CROATIA - NOV 5, 2014
Cask at the Stein Inn, Isle of Skye, Scotland. Pours orange with very small white head. Malty and lightly hoppy. Looking other ratings there is a chance something was wrong with this one.

HogTownHarry (6200) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
September 20, 2014 - handpull at Craft Beer Co (Islington). Deep clear refractive gold with a very small bubbly off-white head. Light and somewhat fruity aroma with some light green not-very-acidic hop bitterness, not much alcohol - sort of grassy, but sort of not; has a bit of a "tang" to it Taste is simple - grassy, slightly tart, with a hint of green apple and a slightly larger hint of appleseed. Light, slick body, building bitterness, a little still, nice dry and somewhat bitter longish aftertaste. I quite enjoyed this.

Erzengel (5084) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2014
Smooth malty beginning. Fresh, grainy, smooth with hints of lemon. The aftertaste is smooth, malty-grainy. Nice.
