zimbo (739) - - JAN 20, 2013
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.

Erzengel (5078) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2014
On tap. Rated as "Eilean-r". 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!

PalCabral (139) - SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2014
Notes from trip to Scotland summer 2014. Bottle. Pours amber-gold with a big frothy head settling to a nice rim on top of the beer. The aroma is fuity and yeasty, with a malt backbeat. The taste is malty and grainy, with some spice coming through in the second wave, followed by a long bitter aftertaste. Not a bad a beer at all, but rather full in the mouth and thus quite filling.
