Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized slightly off-white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is herbal, quite nicely fruity and berryish along with some mild honey and toffee to it as well. Flavour is a bit berryish, some spruce, pine, mild grass, fruity and floral notes as well as some sweet malts and toffee as well. Fresh!

Clear amber beer with a good pale cream coloured head. Palate is softish but peppered with fine stinging carbonation. Sweet lactose malt and a little thin cream. Orangey citric hops, lesser tangerine and peel. Finishes smooth and semi dry. Nice backend but as with a lot of Cromarty beers it’s a touch on the sweet side for the style.

yngwie (13351) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle. A clear-looking dark golden to amber beer with dense, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma is peachy and piney, with orange zest and a little maltyness. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, with orange zest, pine cones and some grapefruit. Medium body, soft and pleasant carbonation. Long, piney and bitter finish with a decent bitterness. Juicy. Not a favorite of mine, but quite decent and drinkable. 140608

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2014
Bottled 500ml (AbM, BB 07/2014)
Amber color, steady medium-sized head. Strong gooseberry bush aroma, kind of Sorachi Ace feeling. Medium-bodied. Similar gooseberry in the flavor, resiny with some fruityness and pine needles. A bit this and that. For this ABV has reasonably nice drinkably and has nice malt profile too.

Leighton (10772) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2012
Keg at BrewDog Camden, London. Pours dark, cloudy red-gold with a small, white foam head. Lovely toasty pine nose, some ripe grapefruit. Medium sweet flavour, loads of pine, some toasty leaves and grass, lots of juice grapefruit, orange and melon. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderately resinous finish, juicy ripe citrus, plenty more piney hops. Great balance here. Super drinkable stuff. Great work.
