Details:

In the Highlands of Scotland, centuries ago, small breweries began producing rich, dark, hoppy ales known locally as 'Heavy'. In addition 'Light' beers were also brewed, known South of the border as Milds, but it was a pint of 'Heavy' which typified the highlanders' preference.

You can now recapture this distinctive rich bitter flavour, with its dark, malty flavour, balanced by a generous helping of hops. To enjoy Highland Heavy Ale at its best it should be served at cellar temperature.

No Additional sugar required.

Basic beer brewing equipment is required: Starter Equipment set and 25 litre fermentation bin and lid.

Barrel or Bottles, see Need to know - Barrel or Bottle for more information.

    Good head
    Review by French Bobon 15/12/2015
    Excellent taste, really malty and heavy with a strong taste. One problem, from the barrel. I got 50% froth and even though I'm over half way through it , the head is still there. i will buy this again though , excellent.

    Excellent all round well balanced pint
    Review by Martinon 29/09/2015
    Too 9 days to ferment out and after a couple of weeks in the bottle was smooth and tasty. This is a really good well balanced ale that is easy drinking with a good body and nice taste.

    Excellent malty tasty
    Review by Roryon 13/04/2013
    My 3rd brew, really tasty full bodied, after 5 weeks very nice. Keep in fridge 24hrs before u taste. I also added 250 g of DME to the primary fermenter.

    Must be served chilled
    Review by Captain Spitfireon 09/12/2012
    Got this brew kit from my local grocers shop. Very Easy to make, no measuring amounts of sugar or adding extra sachets. Fermentation took 6 days, left it in the bottle for 21 days as per the instructions. End result is a clone of Cairngorm Brewery's Black Gold, and Isle of Skye's Black Cuillin. Essentially - Highland Heavy Ale!

    Only drawback is its a little weak for my liking (only came out at about 3.4%) and needs to be chilled for at least 2 hours before drinking to get the best flavour, disappointing when you forget to put one in the fridge!!!! 4 out of 5 stars.
