Bottle from Hugh. Another lindistinct pale ale offering from a craft brewer. Obviously attempting to capture the lager market. Nothing about the pour, taste or hopping stands out.

rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 26, 2017
bottle on Loch Ness tour boat --- Light malt aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, strong carbonation, medium hops. Hay and a little brown sugar along the way. A traditional Ale, for a general audience. Within that framework, it is a satisfactory brew.

3.4
radassace (419) - SCOTLAND - MAY 1, 2017
500ml bottle as " Cairngorm Gold". Pours a golden straw colour with a small white head. Nose is bready with a touch of lemon and spice. Similar to a German Helles. Medium carbonation. Taste is bready, grainy malt with a slight sour and light citrus aftertaste. Mildly floral bitterness. Not bad.

dcmchew (104) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - APR 15, 2017
Sweet malts, a bit of popped corn. Zesty in the finish, with some nice hints of grapefruit and dry grainy crackers. Traditional, clean, nice. A bit sweet-ish.

2.7
Grumpelmies (364) - GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. "Cairngorm Gold". Clear golden with a nice head. Mild aroma of floral hops, zest and a hint of diacetyl. Taste is slightly fruity, zesty, earthy and floral. Medium carbonation. Creamy. Refreshing and easy drinking but also kind of bland. The artwork with the grim looking eagle and the happy fonts put a smile on my face.

3.2
Nonshaugen (660) - Fetsund, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2017
50 cl(?), bottle conditioned, BB May 28th 2017. Slightly hazy, light amber, medium white head, lively carbonation. Not much to the nose other than slight hints of pale malts, almost lager-ish. Mouthfeel is a bit fizzy carbonation, a bit dry but mostly watery and thin. Flavours of caramel malts, toffee and honey, quite sweet beer. It,s nice and very sessionable.

2.6
mzaar (3643) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2017
Flaska. Klar guldfärgad med ett vitt skum. Dofter av säd, gräs och honung. Smakinslag av honung, säd, citrus och gräs. Lite dammig eftersmak.
