Bottle. Bit of a floral aroma, watery and tangy taste. Nothing especially interesting about it.

500ml bottle. Floral aroma with honey sweetness. Flavour is a little biscuity. Pretty average.

Hanoi (996) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle. Nose is cereal, slight straw, worrying hint of egg. Taste, cereal, banana and an unpleasant sweetness I can’t place. No finish. Mouthfeel is thin. A nothing beer which is best avoided.

AshtonMcCobb (7101) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle @ the Claymore Restaurant, Broadford, Isle of Skye. Pours golden, with a decent head. The nose has lemon and pale malt. The taste has more of the same, also some honey. The palate is light to medium bodied and very refreshing. Overall a very good session beer, if nothing special beyond that.

On cask at Congress, Longton. Pours golden amber. Toffee nose, hop balance. Very nice gold.

.5l bottle brought back from the islands by my mate, and new RB friend, BalkanMac. Medium sweet gold body, distinctive ale sweetness (and warmth). Pretty deep orange and white head. Caramel, banana, weak water aroma. Very tasty and tartly drinkable. The oats are a dominate flavor for a lighter abv beer. Unique flavor notes throughout. Good roast malt before clean watery body. OK Beer.

Bit sweet. This is ok. I can’t shake my asthma and my cough is pretty nasty. I’m tired.

dantheman278 (1365) - SCOTLAND - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle at Ardvasar hotel on Skye. Pretty fresh then! Beautiful clear golden pour, thin bubbly white head with light lacing. Light cereal malts, soft lemon zest on the nose. Lager grains, soft fruits, light bitterness, good mouthfeel. On its own, pretty mediocre. But fresh, local, after a walk through the moors, very very tasty indeed.

zimbo (991) - SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2015 Cask, very fresh at the Castle Tavern in Inverness. Light yellow orange sparkle with starts malt forward and has a very smooth silk body. Soft tender fluffy head but not overly thick leaving an intricate patten of lacing. Slight bitterness marries beautifully with the toffee-ish maltiness which leads to a mealy and long complex gentle lingering bitterness. Firm. Beautiful. The difference between the cask and bottle version is simply staggering.
