[Gravity cask at Chippenham Beer Festival] Gold, thin off-white head, slight fizz. Straw, grass & honey. Sweet & smooth with a dry finish. Thought I’d better try as it’s meant to be one of the best examples of the style (and it is better than most lagers), but at the end of the day I don’t like the style much, even good ones like this.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
cask @ redlight redlight. Spicy hops on the nose with feint musty notes. Pours golden blonde with a thick white head. Nice malty flavor upfront with some spicy grassy hops and dry finish. It is a great cask ale but I think I would appreciate it more as a lager with typical lager carbonation. But its still a great session.

This was a crisp refreshing lager beer. It’s a quality product from a brewer that has a respectable portfolio of beers. This is way better than most lagers brewed in the UK. The website informs us that Schiehallion is a mountain whose “misty swirls of early morning air” is the inspiration for the beer. Sorry but if andsled wants lager that tastes of air there’s always Coors light. Luckily Schiehallion is much better than air.

Cask (handpump) at the White Horse on Parsons Green on 4 August 2006. Surprised to find I’d not rated this before. Pale golden colour. OK, with some citrus, but mouthfeel was a bit dull. Not in great condition. Flagged for re-rate.

Cask at Akkurat. 9.9.2010. Hazy golden with an off-white head. Good lacing. Wooden, barnyard, grassy aroma with caramel present. Grainy sweetness and grassy hops bitterness. Dry on the tip of the tongue and juicy on the back of the tongue. Medium body. Medium carbonation.
Farm ale qualities in a lager! A bit on the ripe side perhaps?
