john44 (3078) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2017
Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in May 2009 - Reddish Brown in colour. Malty; toasty malts, caramel, hint of toffee. Hoppy; grassy hops, piney hop. Fruity; citrus-orange and, apparently, hints of blackcurrant. Malty fruity throughout leading to a hoppy slightly bitter finish. (2009-05)

stravale (3055) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 10, 2012
Cask @ Sunningdale Hotel, Elgin
Caramel brown...clear....dense white head with good lacing
Aroma of soft roasted malts, dark caramel, soft dark fruits
Taste of dark caramel malts, bit of soft roasted malts, dark fruits, some hedgerow fruits, touch of christmas cake spices
Palate - soft carb, medium body, smooth. Finish as main flavour, the soft fruity malts and hint of spice comes through more.
Overall - I don’t see this very often, but it’s one of my favourite Cairngorm beers - should be available all year round

Exjedi (4) - SCOTLAND - APR 10, 2011 does not count
this beer danced all over my mouth, hoppy in places but not over the top, lot of citrus fruits more orange than anything else, nice creamy head, and boy does it satisfy your thirst.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2011
[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Clear copperish brown with a decent head. Malty aroma with plenty of dark fruit. On the palate, nice balance of bitterness and sweetness, good hit of bramble fruit with some citrus and spice. Interesting stuff, really very sessionable indeed [01042011] 400th rating

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2010
Cask, Kings Head, Carlisle. Good example of a Scots heavy. Sweet, malty, dark, good sharp tang at the back of the throat, verging on the spicy side.

A beautiful beautiful beer. Its a shame I have work tomorrow I could have drunk this all night.

3.4
berkshirejohn (6451) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2009
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Hazy reddish amber with a thick cream head that heavily laces the glass; citrus aroma; zingy in the mouth with orange fruit flavours and chewy roasted malts; fruity gently bitter finish. Very pleasant. One of the best of the JDW festival ales.

3.5
harrisoni (18437) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2009
Cask handpull at The Monk’s Retreat, JDW, Reading. Copper, slight haze, lasting beige head. Cascades really show through on aroma and then the fruity Willametter enhance and develop the malt, the finish is pure stinging blackcurrant Willamette. One ofthe better ones of the 50 festival beers.
