Initially thought this was just another uninspired tourist trap sort of a beer. Not so much of Pale Ale as you might imagine.

From the taste it is obviously not the case. Lightish brown with a somewhat appetising but subdued nose this formed a reasonable thin but constant head.

Taste and mouthfeel are the real surprises. Although on the light side this has a lovely peaty smokey flavour and feel you would associaite with the local whiskys and landscape. Really has captured the sense of place here and if you could call any brew a 'terroir beer' then this would certainly be it.

A real grower on you as you near the end of the glass and very satisfying. Would love to try it on cask. Great potential here.
