3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Ardvasar hotel on Skye. Pretty fresh then! Beautiful clear golden pour, thin bubbly white head with light lacing. Light cereal malts, soft lemon zest on the nose. Lager grains, soft fruits, light bitterness, good mouthfeel. On its own, pretty mediocre. But fresh, local, after a walk through the moors, very very tasty indeed.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask, very fresh at the CAstle Tavern in Inverness.
Light yellow orange sparkle with starts malt forward and has a very smooth silk body. Soft tender fluffy head but not overly thick leaving an intricate patten of lacing.
Slight bitterness which marries beautifully with the toffee-ish maltiness which leads to a long complex gentle lingering bitterness. Firm.
Beautiful. The difference between the cask and bottle version is staggering.

Amber with a thin white soapy very lacy lasting sticky head. Smells of toasted malt, light hops and malt. Fruity apricot. Smells fresh. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Tastes of toasted malt, sweet fruit with a dry bitter hop finish. Citrus lingers on the finish. Easy to drink.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours deep golden with a white head. A bit bland and anonymous. Quite light body. Fruity and malty with a light bitterness. Ok, but quite forgettable. (Backlog: Tasted at ōl & Mat í09)

0.5L bottle. Rich golden pour, good aroma and lacing. A spunky lager-y ale, easy to drink, nice and hoppy. One of the best "bitters" Iíve had, really good.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cask @ JDW Elgin
Golden yellow....clear...white head...reasonable lacing
Aroma - sweet light malts..slight metallic smell
Taste - sweet malts..sour..some vegetal notes..bitter bit metallic hops...bit of honey...bit of creaminess....flavour way below average - not good at all
Palate - soft carb...smooth texture. Finish as main flavour...lingering metallic bitterness
The only good thing about this beer is itís appearance. Didnít finish my 1/2 pint. I just didnít like it at all.
