Set up for diners in the Lounge but still happy to serve drinkers. Surprised to see Bass on keg. Instructed to 'Serve Cold'.

Very quiet early evening.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Caledonian - Deuchars IPA3.80PoorIn a blindfold test this could easily be mistaken for Tennents! No hops, no smooth malt base. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

Quiet but excellent, friendly service. Beer crept up to £3.55.

Inveralmond - Lia Fail4.70AcceptableServed in good enough condition this is another anonymous brown malty beer overlaid with that Inveralmond trademark flinty finish.

Inveralmond - Ossian's Ale4.10PoorMore hints of cider than honey this time. Not quite undrinkable but nearly.

All seats at the bar in use. Friendly enough place as long as you like golf. Ales (£3.40) outselling lager and smooth-flow.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Inveralmond - Ossian's Ale4.10AcceptableTypical Ossian's but with a hint of honey.

The pub is found in Cults, Aberdeenshire, AB15 9SE.

Family run hotel in Cults to the west of Aberdeen. Although the lounge bar majors on food there are stools available at the bar. Don't expect any unusual guests but, to make up, the service is fast and friendly. On 4th September 2009 Ossian's was an eye watering £3.30 a pint.

We have visited this pub 11 times, seen 7 different beers and tried 5 of them.
