2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
1/2 pint cask, Abbotsford, Edinburgh. Golden coloured and with a light reddish hue. Small creamy, but not entirely consistent head. Light malty and somewhat sourish from hops aroma. Soft, but lightly bitter flavour. Mouthfeel is smooth like a cask ale even though this is supposed to be a pilsener. Only the distinct cat-piss hops can identify this as a pilsener. Slightly oily finish.

Cask gravity at Kent BF 2006. In the programme it is down as Highlands and Islands Brewery. Not sure if this and Orkney have merged. Pale gold colour with lasting white head. Very light, bit yeasty, some citric hop. Bit bland, citrus hops are ok if a bit bleached.

Cask, Lincoln Fest 06. Light gold with white foam. Aromas are lemon with some soap. Zesty and hoppy with soft grain. Hints of apricot and sulphur. Flavours are very fruity with apricots and lemon. Prickly and resinous hops. Dry towards the finish. Extremely easy to drink. Perhaps could do with a stronger finish.

I enjoyed several pints of this wonderful beer at the Volunteer Arms in Musselburgh. Quite a unique style, flowery and fruity hop aromas, and like Nimbus there is a slight sweetness. A crackin’ pint enjoyed in a crackin’ pub.
