3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint at the Old Manor in Bracknell. Slightly cloudy lager with a short head. Its palatable, a somewhat dry and ipa-like lager. However there are a few lagers I’d rather have, this is just good for British standards. Smells more of hops than malt, odd for a lager, and a hint floral. Not bad, but appears to be overrated, there are many better beers out there.
