Sigmund (6645) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2016
500 ml bottle, from Matkroken Stokka. BB date 28.06.2014. ABV is 4.3%. Golden colour, moderate white head. Lovely aroma, notes of flowers and tropical fruits. Light bodied. Medium dry flavour, decent fruity and herbal hops, but not quite the complexity of the cask version. Still a great refreshment.

zimbo (891) - SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Very similar to other Cairngorm beers in the range with golden colour and a clean pure white head. Light on the hops and clean but certainly nothing very challenging or memorable.

thmsboyd (193) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle BBE: 28 Dec 2015. Well-chilled. Pours a clear amber, with a moderate white head that’s patchy when receded. Bright aroma of lemon zest and elderflower. Quite bready/yeasty with a hint of butyric. Very light sweetness and a light-medium bitterness. Balanced yet interesting. Fullish body attributable to wheat content, giving a coarse texture. Lively on the tongue with a medium-length finish. Wheat is the star here in a sessionable ale that stands out from the crowd.

Scopey (12245) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle from Croydon Whistle Stop. It pours clear golden with a thick white head. The nose is big floral notes, sweet elderflower and candied citrus. The taste is crisp, bitter-sweet, smooth, elderflower cordial, citrus peel and toasty grain with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth and easy drinking. No complaints here.
