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.

Scopey (6136) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle from Peckhams Union Sq, Aberdeen. It pours pale yellow, with a thin foamy white head and moderate carbonation. The nose is hay, cereal, grass and white bread. The taste is lemon, lime, white bread, cereal, grass and biscuit, with a bready finish. It’s simple, smooth and really easy to drink. A solid lager.

Rastacouere (6119) - 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.

KnutAlbert (6007) - 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.

DonMagi (5596) - 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.

Sigmund (4933) - 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.

Bullit (3961) - Burgos, SPAIN - MAY 18, 2009
Bottled @ Peckham’s Beer Festival. Pale yellow colour, small white head. Aroma has typical lager malts, some fruits. Flavour is slightly malty as well.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2007
Bottled. RBESG. Golden colour, big head. Good fruity with nice hoppiness and spicy yeastiness. Full-ish mouthfeel at this abv-level, with spicy yeast yet low on the flavour profile with low bitterness.

JohnRMurdoch (3169) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle from Hippo Beers. Golden amber colour, big head. Dry resin, corn grain aroma. Corn resin flavour, bitter aftertaste. Quite a big tasting lager.
