COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Things move slowly on this island – which suits our lager down to the ground. The rich and full flavour of this thirst quenching drink is down to its unusually long fermentation. Whether it’s the salt in the sea air that blows through the brewery, or the quality of the water – we’re not sure – but we think you will agree there is something special about this lager.

Sigmund (5307) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2007
Bottle, at RBESG 2007 in Glasgow, Grand Tasting. Golden coloured beer, large head. Pleasant hoppy and yeasty aroma, slightly oaky, nearly a vinous character. The flavour has the same characteristics as the aroma, but is less vinous.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 30, 2007
Bottle, RBESG Grand Tasting 07. From the never ending eruption that was the bottle of this. Hazy blonde, thin white head. Nose is hazy and warm maltiness. Some warm, bad water infection nose. Mouth is watery malt, some dry rot, not much aftertaste, think this could have gone bad?

KnutAlbert (6267) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2007
RBESG 2007. Fruity, with a liberal use of hops, giving both flowers and dryness. Some yeastiness, but not too much. A fine lager.
