JackMandarin (506) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - FEB 22, 2018
Can from Bridgend Services, Freuchie. Pours pretty much clear. It has a fine and light, tightly-knitted head. Aromas of citrus juice and zest. A little sherbert. It's bright and fresh rather than dank and musky. There's a light hint of something herbal and slightly medicinal. The malt comes through with a little bready sweetness. Taste has more fruit juice funk with the focus towards citrus notes again. Zesty on the palate. Long lemony finish. Rich Tea biscuit malt. Light spritz on the carbonation. Medium to lightweight mouthfeel. Ok to good.

zacgillbanks (5843) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2018
Can from Glug, Newcastle. Pale golden coloured with a thick white head of foam. It has a sweet tropical fruit, citrus and pine flavour followed by sweet citrus, grassy notes, biscuit and pine on the spicy finish. Very good.

Heidbummer (1160) - SCOTLAND - NOV 25, 2017
Pint at Cloisters. Pours deep clear gold, dense creamy head. The aroma and taste ate predominantly malty. Some orange marmalade bitterness in the back. Ok.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2017 Táp @ Helgis, Kirkwall. Orkney Island Hopping Session. Kicsit mesterkéltnek tűnik.

Rune (14269) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 26, 2016
Half-pint, keg at Helgi’s Bar. Hazy apricot coloured body. Dissipating beige head, fair lacing. Smell of oily hops, citrus and dried fruits. The taste profile featured mid-sweet grapefruit, oily hops and peaches. Resionous bitterness to the finish. Medium bodied. Good drinking and pretty relaxing after the first day at the St Magnus Conference (Kirkwall 15.04.2016).

jamestulloch (4581) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Keg from The Beerhive. Hazy amber body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of orange marmalade, heather honey and roasted malts. Flavour of orange pith, lime zest, match box, pine needles and fig roll. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. A stunning, hoppy beer. I’d like to see more hop-forward beers like this from Highland.

SaintMatty (7750) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2014
Draught (Pleased To Meet You, Newcastle) - Amber in colour. Peach, syrup, toffee and apricot in the aroma. Fruity and slightly tart taste with peach, toffee, apricot and a hint of mango.

Stuu666 (16067) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 31, 2014
Keg at the Vintage. Pours golden amber, nose is light peach, taste is bitter, sweet fruit.

3.7
Scopey (17083) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Keg at the Lyric. It pours clear orange-amber with a medium white head. The nose is earthy, resin, peach, mango and apricot. The taste is crisp, bitter orange, sherbet, minerals, light alcohol, straw, peppery, grapefruit and some passion fruit with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and prickly carbonation. Clean, crisp and very well balanced. Very nice indeed.
