From a bottle. Pours a very clear pale yellow, some crisp hops flavours, a bit thin and watery for my taste.

mabuzzer (957) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - JAN 14, 2018
500ml bottle as Cairngorm Gold. Golden with a thin white head. Sweet citrus and grass aroma, taste is sweet and lager like. Ok

Nice flavoured beer smooth and mellow. Easy drinking and refreshing. Just on the heavy side. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piepenhenrich (1289) - Steinbach, GERMANY - DEC 8, 2017
Pours golden with medium head, not lasting for long. Promising aroma of a little hops and citrus fruit is not met by its flavor. It’s rather acidic, not really my cup of tea.

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.

Grumbo (4290) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2017
Bottle. Backlog rating from bottle collection and historic scoring. Source not recorded. No tasting notes kept, just rating.

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.

radassace (424) - 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.
