3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal clear golden colour with a lasting fine fluffy head; good lacings. On the nose subtle aromas of wheat, floral citrus notes and hints of barnyard arise. On the palate the beer offer at first a light lively texture which fades quickly into a palate coating velvetness. Flavours of floral citrus hops are subtley lingerin gon the palate. Medium bodied with a short-medium well balanced finish. Good session beer!

500 ml bottle, sainsburys. Not as nice as I remember it from the last time I drank this, though still a fine beer. Slightly over bitter this time making it a little less refreshing.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml bottle from B&M. Served cold in a shaker. I suspect Orkney beers have to be at their freshest to be fully appreciated. This was well within its sell-by date, but was hazy, smelled skunky and didn’t refresh. B&M have had this and the Wayfarer IPA from the same brewery on sale at 99p a bottle. I had the Wayfarer from Sainsbury’s last September, and was hugely impressed. The bottles I’ve had from B&M, not so much. Both beers developed a mighty protein haze on cooling, and had an aging aroma. So, rate as I find, but suspect this might not be the brew in peak condition.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from B&M Bargains; clear golden pour with thin white head, lemon and skunk aroma, sweet taste with a hint of citrus but mostly weird skunkiness. Not good.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
"A blonde beer. Wheat malt, barely malt and three different hops gives a rich, soft mouthfeel and its crisp hop character. The aroma is of pronounced fresh-fruit hops, with a sweet nuttiness. The palate has a verdant, almost vegetal, hop presence. It has a malt character of fresh bread and almonds."
A hoppy fruity aroma, crisp hoppy taste, rich mouthfeel, but gassy.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Greatest draw back is lack of head and appearance when poured into glass. Lots of well bodied taste with bitterness at end (a lot like a woman)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden beer with a thin, frothy head. It has a floral, citrus aroma and the flavour follows suit but with a hoppy hit and a light but distinct bitter, fruity twang to it aswell. It seemed a touch underwhelming at first and there’s not a great deal of aftertaste but it’s definitely growing on me as I go along.
