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.

Heidbummer (232) - SCOTLAND - SEP 10, 2016
Refreshing, slightly bitter, slightly sweet, hint of hops, a little bit floral. It’s a very good lager - just perhaps too carbonated but that helps it be drinkable to the bottom of the pint. Quenching. Nothing groundbreaking but you don’t need that all the time.

Towey1989 (1820) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2016
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of bready malts, some fruit, slight lemon and herbal, grassy hops. Taste of bready malts, some fruit, slight lemon, a little kali plus herbal, grassy and floral hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, slightly bready, grassy hops bitterness in the finish. A really well balanced cask lager, full of flavour but not that bitter. Sweet bready malts, a little citrus and a soft but lingering hop backbone. Great for its style.

sudomorph (1088) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2015
Real ale draft. Pours a clear golden yellow with a half finger, off white head that leaves a thick coating. Fine sediments rising to the top. Aroma is mildly creamy with hints of fruity esters. Taste is balanced with notes of creamy fruity esters, and traditional spicy/earthy hops. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation and a dry finish. Overall a nice cask ale. Fruity Easter, traditional hops, and a great cask mouth feel.
