Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized slightly off-white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is herbal, quite nicely fruity and berryish along with some mild honey and toffee to it as well. Flavour is a bit berryish, some spruce, pine, mild grass, fruity and floral notes as well as some sweet malts and toffee as well. Fresh!

Clear amber beer with a good pale cream coloured head. Palate is softish but peppered with fine stinging carbonation. Sweet lactose malt and a little thin cream. Orangey citric hops, lesser tangerine and peel. Finishes smooth and semi dry. Nice backend but as with a lot of Cromarty beers it’s a touch on the sweet side for the style.

Leighton (21839) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2012
Keg at BrewDog Camden, London. Pours dark, cloudy red-gold with a small, white foam head. Lovely toasty pine nose, some ripe grapefruit. Medium sweet flavour, loads of pine, some toasty leaves and grass, lots of juice grapefruit, orange and melon. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderately resinous finish, juicy ripe citrus, plenty more piney hops. Great balance here. Super drinkable stuff. Great work.

Bottle at home, thanks to Craig (Zimbo) - 20/12/12. Chilled in the fridge for about an hour - spot on! Pours a clear mid amber with a thin off white head that clears to the edge of the glass and forms a film atop. Some lacing ensues. Nose is big on pine resin, bitter hops, grapefruit, ripe mango, orange pith. Taste comprises bitter grapefruit, bitter hops, pine, mango, juicy citrus, bitter tastic! Medium bodied, fine carbonation, palate is pitch perfect. A most excellent IPA !
