Cask @ The Counting House in Glasgow. Strong malt flavours, nice and dark but very drinkable considering the alcohol %. Aftertaste reminded me of candyfloss. The first cairngorm beer I’ve tried. tombyars (1790) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2011
Best pint of Wildcat to be had in Glasgow was found in Tennents Bar - but sadly this is no longer the case! This is a review from here in September 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear dark mahogany red in colour with a thick creamy buff head. Strong aroma of buttery highland toffee long in intensity - similar to the "Caley" 80/ aroma but much more powerful. Rich robust creamy mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Mixed malts give a rich juicy maltloaf base of raisins, dates, molasses and soft highland toffee notes. There is a vague hint of hop resins in the short aftertaste but this is soon lost as malt returns in the long sweet finish. A popular beer from the Cairngorm portfolio and a regular in some of the Scottish JDW outlets. Sissio (1783) - Orsenigo, ITALY - JUL 28, 2013

Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading. Chestnut with a dense cream head; syrupy malt aroma; lots of earthy malt flavours with some roasted nuts and some sour blackberry fruit; deeply bitter finish. Excellent. zimbo (982) - SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Drunk cask in Edinburgh.
Can be invonsidtent but this time it has never been better.
Dark russett brown with a husky feral edge which marries perfectly with the sweeter core. Strong and aggressive. imdownthepub (15519) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2004
Cask Conditioned at Charlbury Beer Festival. Brown amber beer with short head. Very decent stronger beer a good hop and malt balance, richly roasted with a complex bitter finish.
