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.

worldbeertaste (1795) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2012
Clear pale thin light goldish orange with a white soapy lacy lingering head. Smells stale, with hops, citrus, flowery and malt. Medium to full thin body. Tastes of sweet grape, light malt with a soft hop bitter finish. More compex than it seems. With some melon and a bit of corn. Decent and interesting.

altonbrownd (5547) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - APR 18, 2012
On Cask at Wildeman. Gold body with thin head. Faint bitter nose. Taste is pretty malty and smooth. Sweet floral notes with a bitter finish. Enjoyable.

mansquito (5208) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria cask ($7): Pours an orangeish colour with a nice creamy white head. Aroma is bready and fruity, but the taste is where it is at. It is kind of fruity. Nice amount of bitter hops. Bready finish. Extremely chuggable, but in the most pleasant possible way a beer can be chuggable. I was very impressed by this offering. This might be the best nondescript lager I have ever had.

rollinsr (564) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - FEB 6, 2012
Light in body with a slight amount of white head. Very drinkable with some sweet fruity (not exactly citrus aroma but a little banana and ginger-like flavors). Very crisp on the palate with only the slightest bit of malt beneath the hop and yeast flavors. Kind of reminded me of the Weihenstephaer Hefe. At 4.8% this beer is very sessionable.

HonusWagner (2072) - Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2012
One of the better casks I’ve ever tried, nose has nice lemony element and some slight sweetness. Taste is similar, although fruity hop quality is slightly lost. More pungent than expected; good beer overall and extremely refreshing.

ChainGangGuy (4781) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Appearance: Dispensed a hazed, yellow body with a small, snow white head.

Smell: Pith-heavy lemon peels, lesser notes of spice and herb over a subtle, very understated base of lightly crisped barley.

Taste: Lightly (and briefly) sweet, simple particularly pale maltiness. Dull spiciness with a sharp lemon burst accompanying the hop bitterness. Dry, lightly spicy finish with that pithy lemon quality still gripping the tongue.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: Schiehallion has that strong lemony tone I felt their Bitter & Twisted had, leaving it just a bit too Lemon Pledge-y for me.

Cask by handpump at Bon Accord, Glasgow (11 Jan 12) - clear golden with mild citrus aroma and off-white head, citrus taste with slightly bitter and fruity aftertaste, very nice drink

tombyars (1580) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2012
First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in April 1995. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear gold in colour with a thick creamy white head. Strong citric notes and warm bread notes in the long aroma. Thin and resiny mouthfeel with good lacing. Pale malts give a sharp clean malty bite with gooseberry fruit evident. Wheaty cereal notes present in the grassy, bitter aftertaste. Finish is robust with the malt sweetness coming through. This has weaned a few punters off their nitrokeg TL! Highly recommended.

BenH (3438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2011
Cask at kings wank. Golden with white head. Nice light lemon hop aroma. Similar taste, flavours are perfecty balanced, nice caramel malt with slight yeast note. Palate is a bit too thin and lacks co2. Probably better out a keg
