Bottle / cafe bar Kyle of Lochalsh. Nothing special about this Scottish Ale. No hoppyness on the nose as one might expect but where is the round maltiness, the hints of sweet molasses. I’ve had this in draught and was happy to have a second, but they’ve butchered the heart out of this beer. It didn’t help having it served cold out of a fridge in the Kyle of Lochalsh. Just shouldn’t be chilled. Anyway dissapointed, and see that there putting their effort in the newly branded label. Concentrate on the taste guys!

Bottle, pours a dark ruby colour, small head. Malty and caramel aroma and a taste mild malt, gentle bitterness to finish. A nice drinkable ale.

500ml bottle from Beer Hawk - Red amber body. Diminishing white head. Aroma of Peaty, smoky malt. Flavour similar but with a refreshing fruity hop finish with some acidity. Not bad, had many similar in Scotland.

The_Bish (1124) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2013
Very boring. But ok. Booty, with some dark berry mild bitterness. 50 milds by the end of the year. There’s a challenge. Better get sourcing. I need 1 a week. Sounds tough.
