Godfather50 (45) - SCOTLAND - APR 18, 2014
Bottle, Hectors Cafe, Kyle of Lochalsh. This was served chilled to me in Kyke just off the Isle of Skye. The chill ruined any early appreciation of smell and taste. So while warming in it in the palm of my hands I wondered why the brewery donít tell the vendors not to serve it so cold. That apart itís a pale ale with some biscuity, malty notes. Hopping is moderate and flowery. The head retention was OK. It quenched my thirst but there was nothing living about this ale. Probably pasteurised, I must check.

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Cask at local pub in lovely village of Plockton nr Skye. Amber looks with a small white head. Gentle malt and hop notes in the nose. Flavour was similar with some notes of yeast and grain. Fairly reserved bitterness. Drinkable and seemed fresh but on the whole unspectacular. Didnít really pick up on the Porridge factor !

Bottle. Bit of a floral aroma, watery and tangy taste. Nothing especially interesting about it.

Hanoi (361) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle. Nose is cereal, slight straw, worrying hint of egg. Taste, cereal, banana and an unpleasant sweetness I canít place. No finish. Mouthfeel is thin. A nothing beer which is best avoided.

AshtonMcCobb (2352) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle @ the Claymore Restaurant, Broadford, Isle of Skye. Pours golden, with a decent head. The nose has lemon and pale malt. The taste has more of the same, also some honey. The palate is light to medium bodied and very refreshing. Overall a very good session beer, if nothing special beyond that.
