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.

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.

500ml bottle from Scottish Real Ale Shop. Pours hazy pale gold, thin white head. Aromas of lemon, lager. Taste is very fruity too, mostly fresh lemon though. Light body, crisp finish. OK.

Sigmund (6779) - 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.

KnutAlbert (6713) - 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.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2007
Clear light golden, tiny, diminishing white head. The peppery yeast character initially surprises positively, but clearly it is soured, herbal and sulfury, just like their 80 /-. Pretty ruined in mouth, bready and watery and in fact not unlike dish water. Poor.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2007
Train. Tart funk, cider hints, lambic. sulphue. This is clearly infected but i still quite liked it and if this is how its ment to be its alot better than many scottish ales.

AshtonMcCobb (5408) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 6, 2012
Pours golden with a nice prop head. Nose is metallic, spicy and herbaceous. Taste of more herbs, some pale male. Palate is well balanced - light to medium body n texture, clean finish. Overall, a well made pils.
