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.
Clear yellow beer, good white head. A very faint hint of caramel and citrus in the aroma but not much. Flavour has the same, with a bit of tartness as well. It mellows out into almost nothing after that, just a lingering hint of caramel amongst an otherwise watery finish. It’s fine. It’s crisp and refreshing.

Keg at Uig Hotel Skye. Pours clear gold with small head. Aroma very slight. Some grain and faint citrus. Taste was mild malt and citrus. The oats don’t seem to offer much in the way of mouthfeel or body. Quite a bland beer. Maybe OK for a hot day session drink. Not great. Piw (1159) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2017

Large bottle at home.
Aroma of honey, flowers, a bit weak aroma.
Pours dark misty amber, white creamy head lacing.
Taste as well is not that rich, oats, a bit honey, minimal flowers.
Mouthfeel is watery, little fizzy.

550ml bottle. Pours a light gold with an off white head. Nose is sweet malt, biscuit, honey and something a bit floral. Creamy light mouth feel. Taste is fairly subtle but has a slight stout like taste with a honey malt with a slight orange bitterness from the hops. Overall pretty decent for a light ale. shoestring (408) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - SEP 2, 2016
Burnt orange colour with nice fluffy head that tightened a bit when settled. Clear. Not much nose. Easily drunk. Not very complex but drinkable. Dry finish. Would never know porridge oats in there but a little something in palate nybol (2247) - DENMARK - JUL 3, 2016
Let humlet, meget sødlig. En god ale, der er sødlig tør i det. Ale som det skal være. Heidbummer (684) - SCOTLAND - MAY 26, 2016
Pint Wetherspoons. Pours light amber, transient head. Faint malty aroma. It’s a bitter, and it’s pleasantly bitter. No real complexity. Decent pint, but nothing special. ERB92 (753) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2015
Honey, grass, toast and fruits in the aroma. Golden with a off-white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average to soft carbonation. Overall an OK BItter, but a bit on the thin side. Nothing interesting here.
