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.

Ungstrup (29849) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 1, 2008
Bottled at RBESG 2007. A golden beer with just a bit of sediment floating around under a lazing orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of straw, and so is the flavor, though also with a note of citrus.

oh6gdx (20919) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2008
Bottled@Fonefan. Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is hops, diacetyl and some mild earthyness. Flavour is quite much the same with some mild sweet hayish notes. Wellbalanced, but not very exciting.

Scopeys East Croydon tasting - Cheers Paul! Clear pale gold beer, tiny white head. Light semi dry palate. Dry lagerish malt, tiny bit of tangy hop. Dry finish. Drinkable - certainly had worse lagers.

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle from a garden centre. Pours clear gold with a thick white head. Decent aroma decent flavour. A bit like a golden ale. Good though a slight herbiness on finish definitely drinkable. I thought ok.

Bottle at East Crowdon Tasting. Clear gold pour with a small, white head. Cereal malt and light lemon on the nose. Pretty sweet flavor, cereal, some citrus notes, faint leafy bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes sweet, simple, mild grain and cereal. Easy drinker.

Courtesy of Fonefan. It’s a slightly hazy, golden beer with a creamy head. The aroma has a light sweetness and notes of fruit. The same goes for the flavour, where I also find caramel and malt. It’s smooth and pleasant, and it’s quite charming even if it’s rather thin-bodied.
