    This is a porridge oat ale. probably the only beer in the world that uses porridge in the name. The beer is a clear deep gold with a foamy white head that disappears in a couple of minutes. The aroma is sweet malt with some plumish tones. The flavour is malty, with some sweetness coming through and a dry bitter finish.

    I tried this beer on April 4, 2008 at “Smokeless Joe’s” in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a dark translucent gold colour with a fluffy white head that quickly died. The aroma was mainly grassy malt, but there was a hoppish hint. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was also a combination of grainy malt, with some bitter hoppiness thrown in for good measure. Definitely a better beer than both the Red Cuillin and the Black Cuillin.

    500 ml bottle, bought in Scarborough. Full name is "Isle of Skye Hebridean Gold Porridge Oat Ale". ABV is 4.3%. Deep golden colour, creamy and lasting off-white head. Pleasant fruity hops in the aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. The flavour has moderate malts and acceptable hops, hints of nuts and maybe some toffee. The porridge oat is just there as an airy notion in the background. Dry hoppy finish. Easy drinking, nice enough.

    Golden colour, big creamy white head. Aroma is fruits, slight honey, grass and some herbs/spices. Flavour is leather, fruits and a bunch of spices. Ok, but not anything that blew my mind.
