4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2015 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 marries beautifully with the toffee-ish maltiness which leads to a mealy and long complex gentle lingering bitterness. Firm.
Beautiful. The difference between the cask and bottle version is simply staggering.

Honey, grass, toast and fruits in the aroma. Golden with a off-white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average to soft carbonation. Overall an OK BItter, but a bit on the thin side. Nothing interesting here.

On tap. Rated as "Eilean-Òr". Smooth fresh beginning. Malt, fresh and crisp, probably a bit too cold. Hints of grain, slightly sweet. The aftertaste is a bit watery, refreshing, nice!
