1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a clear pale golden body with a small white head. Nose is pale malts and massive amounts of buttery diacetyl tones. Holy Macaroni, it ain’t often you get this much diacetyl in a commercial beer; these guys must have been in a hurry to bottle! :-P Taste is pale malts, red berries, grass and still loads of sweet, buttery diacetyl tones. Not good. Light body and carbonation. By far the worst for me so far, from this otherwise rather capable Scottish brewery.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
£1.70 from Tesco for 500ml:
Biscuit and grain with a grassy hops aroma and a few malts thrown in as well. It is quite floral and refreshing with a few mild fruits and a little citrus too.
Golden colour with a centimetre tall, bubbly white head on top and a clear body. Retention is not bad, it only reduces a fraction in the opening minutes.
Biscuit malts, grassy hops and some light apple to begin, there is also some grain and grassy hops in there along with some mild fruit and a touch of citrus from the nose.
Medium bodied with carbonation about the same, the beer is refreshing and it feels slightly creamy too with a light bitter finish.
A nice lager taste with some light malts and a few fruits coming through as well that managed to give it a little bit of depth and something slightly different. This was one that went down fairly well and would make a good session lager.
