Not doing ag yet, but harvestoun does one of my favourite beers, bitter and twisted. Some of their others are pretty good.

Not brewed it myself but I suggest using either golden syrup (golden syrup is partailly inverted) instead of white suger or if you want to go the extra mile either buy or make some invert syrup

Golden or blonde ale.
From the book....
"A well balanced bitter sweet beer in which malt and hops dominate. The blend of malt, hops and fruit produces a clean hoppy aftertaste. "
I'll go with the recipe to start and see what it turns out like...

Gives it a lovely flavour and wont dry the beer out like sugar.

Im interested to hear how this turns out. Harviestoun is probably my favourite brewery and I’ve never had Ptarmigan. I believe it is no longer brewed.
