Strange to find a name like this for this brewery. Nice head and features very refreshing although a little bitter for my taste.

Quite good but I expected more from this brewery, it is a shame Orkney brewery was bought by another.

Sigmund (4932) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2010
500 ml bottle, thanks to my beerpal Olav who brought it home from the Orkneys. ABV is 3.6%. Crystal clear golden colour, big to moderate white head. Pleasant aroma of fruity hops, notes of tropical fruits. Light bodied. Decent hoppy flavour, some fruitiness first, dry and "dusty" finish. Very nice for its moderate ABV.
