3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Oban Bay Kilt Lifter [3.9%] on cask tap at The Lorne in Oban.
Clear golden-amber body with a good head and exceptional lacing for a cask ale.
Mild aroma dominated by sweet malts.
Hops slightly dominate the malts in the mildly bitter flavor.
Excellent soft mouthfeel.

Hand pulled pint at the brewery, Oban. Poured fine with small head and looked the part. Only seemed to have one element of the three traditional IPA components. It has a nice spicey bitter finish that rasps the pallets. But no hop on the nose and not enough for the style in the taste. Also lacking ABV for an IPA. So itís an Ordinary Bitter.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle courtesy of Nick & Anna (Thanks both!) consumed at home Sunday 12th October 2014. Pours gold with a white filmy head, looks good (sadly things go downhill from here). I get washing up liquid and a rather clinically tainted beer. There is a hoppy bitterness and its a little twangy, but if truth be known it is far from great, letís not beat about the bush, itís pretty poor. Drain pour territory sadly. Big thanks to Nick and Anna for the beer, just sorry to report it isnít great at all. A5 A4 T3 P2 Ov7 2.1

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Inverness airport. It pours hazy golden with a small white head. The nose is grainy, toast, nectarine, apricot and sponge cake. The taste is bitter-sweet, toasty, grain, peppery, muffin, and citrus peel with a lingering dry-bitter finish finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Fairly ho hum golden ale.
