COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true pale ale. The full body and rich gold colour comes from a blend of wheat, pale ale and crystal malts. It’s floral and lime citrus nose is created by the extensive use of carefully selected New World aroma hops. The final stage of dry hopping then produces a rich berry flavour for a big refreshing, satisfying brew.

Bottle from Systembolaget, Växjö C. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are flowers, caramel, notes of butter, malt and hops. Nice and pleasant with a semi bitter finish.

Light Amber in colour with frothy white head. Smooth with floral hoppy taste. Citrus aroma. Low carbonation and slight sweetness makes this a light drinkable beer, very nice indeed.

Rich malt aroma with a subdued and oddly enough, almost fresh caramel tone. Soft and sweet taste of caramel malt and fresh hops. A nice beer with a rather special flavor!

Bottle@Friends balcony Pours copper coloured w very thin head. Aroma first of flowers and hay, then a bit like a moldy old cellar! Taste is similar, bitter, but a bit boring. Mouthfeel is ok. Not my kind of pale ale.

Tar man det för vad det är, en ekologisk öl, är det svårt att bli besviken. Precis som att en svala inte gör någon sommar, gör en ekologisk öl sällan en smakupplevelse. Ett öl gott nog att dricka, helt klart, men inte gott nog att avnjuta.

330ml bottle. Pours a clear, medium gold, white head. Malty, quite hoppy aroma, citrus, earth, apricots, butter, saffron (!), faintly smoky (phenolic? unclean?), rye bread. Dry, medium bodied, medium bitterness, balanced CO2. The taste is malty, and rather hoppy, rye bread, earth, citrus peel, faintly smoky/phenolic. Robust, quite drinkable, undeniably Scottish.

Fairly bitter with fresh citrus notes. Nice caramel maltiness. Golden orange, medium carbonation. Very drinkable, especially in the sun.

On keg at Cloisters. A golden beer with a decent foamy white head. Smells hoppy. Aromas of fruit, malt and a little yeast. Fruity, caramel flavours. A little bitter with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Also nice in a bottle but great on keg.

4/5 i mörkhet. Friskt och väldigt humlig i doften. Oljig, besk och lite torr i smaken men ändå fyllig med en skum besk eftersmak.

A pleasant pale ale, with the usual caramel aromas. The hopping was a bit lighter than in a typical american pale ale. I would have preferred a bit more carbonation.
