Philip PirripExceptional14 Aug 2013 First rate, faultless with head and condition. Intriguing sweet and bitterness mix

Blue Lamp, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire

McGargleAcceptable23 May 2013 One of Highland's more grainy brews. OK but not quite to my taste.
McGargleGood17 Mar 2013 Hopy and bitter. Quite dry.
McGargleAcceptable13 Dec 2012 Lacking in hops and body for a 'stronger' beer it was still clean and refeshing. Served from air font.
