3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.
