3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half-pint, keg at Helgi’s Bar. Hazy apricot coloured body. Dissipating beige head, fair lacing. Smell of oily hops, citrus and dried fruits. The taste profile featured mid-sweet grapefruit, oily hops and peaches. Resionous bitterness to the finish. Medium bodied. Good drinking and pretty relaxing after the first day at the St Magnus Conference (Kirkwall 15.04.2016).

Keg from The Beerhive. Hazy amber body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of orange marmalade, heather honey and roasted malts. Flavour of orange pith, lime zest, match box, pine needles and fig roll. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. A stunning, hoppy beer. I’d like to see more hop-forward beers like this from Highland.

Keg at the Lyric. It pours clear orange-amber with a medium white head. The nose is earthy, resin, peach, mango and apricot. The taste is crisp, bitter orange, sherbet, minerals, light alcohol, straw, peppery, grapefruit and some passion fruit with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and prickly carbonation. Clean, crisp and very well balanced. Very nice indeed.

Orange. General citrus fruits, some more orange, a touch of bitterness from the hops and then some more Orange. It might sound not quite right but it was lovely.
