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.

HogTownHarry (6126) - 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.

Smooth malty beginning. Fresh, grainy, smooth with hints of lemon. The aftertaste is smooth, malty-grainy. Nice.

Tselloufc88 (152) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2014
Pint at the Flying Standard, Coventry. Aroma is of some lemon and corn, taste is pretty sweet with some citrus and malt coming through. Medium Bitter in the end. Prefer the bottled version!

Scopey (7054) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2014
Cask at the George, Croydon. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is sweet, doughy, orange muffin, toasty grain and earth. The taste is crisp, doughy, bitter-sweet, light grass, caramel, white sugar, light alcohol and dull toasty grain with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Nowhere near the greatness of keg or bottle version. Ok at best.

Cask at The Shrewsbury Hotel. Has quite a distinct taste for a lager, mixing in a little sweetness to the malts whilst retaining a bitter character.
