Came to the Glenfinnan Hotel table as a frothy welcoming pint. After a dissapointing sniff of the a sent aroma the first sip tasted of a beer that should have been sent back. Acidic sour taste with no malt or hop. I wonder about the state of the pipes that delivered it. So many reviewers have tasted the same that I am pursue died it must be the brewery. Worst pint for three years. What an accolade.

Pale amber in colour. Slight floral aroma. Rather dry with a kind of sour bitterness. Disappointing.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Cask at The White Hart, Edinburgh. Copper pour with a thin, off-white head. The aroma has woody, sawdust and perfumed sandalwood notes to it. The taste is largely dry with woody character and some sweeter, soapy, floral hop (no surprise from a GK beer). Pretty dull.

Ei kovin IPA. Aika helppo ja vhhumalainen. Eliittikokouksen jlkeinen rauhoittumiskalja.

sound67 (731) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2015
Maker: Belhaven (Greene King), Dunbar, East Lothian, Scotland *** Beer: Belhaven IPA (cask, at The Advocate, Edinburgh) *** Style: Bitter *** ALC.VOL.: 4.0% *** Coulour: Clear yellow amber, medium, creamy off-white head. *** Nose: Very mild lemon and hop aroma. *** Texture: Medium body, creamy. Minimal carbonation. *** Taste: Sweetish toffee malt and lemon, light floral notes at first. Lemony note towards the middle, not bitter, with malty base. Floral finish, still lemony, with smooth malty aftertaste. *** Impressions: Unsubtle but super-smooth bitter with a pleasantly lemony note. Not really an IPA though. Easy, but good session ale. Kind of like Deuchards IPA, which, likewise, is actually a bitter.

A special ale brewed by Belhaven for Teuchters. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - slightly funky but then flowers though some astringent malt. Taste - lemon and flowers. Still slightly astringent malt but not too bad. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - its alright but theyll still be selling the Black Isle version for a good whiletto come.

Draught @ the Mill Bank, Coulter. Pours a golden-orange wih gentle bubbles and a reasonable head. The nose has raisins, malt and a hint of grapefruit. The taste has grapes and then malt. The palate is medium bodied, quite creamy and then the finish is a bit more malt than hops. Overall, this is quite good initially but it is let down by the finish.
