From cask at Ayre Hotel, Kirkwall. Served in perfect condition. Golden. Dense and persistent off-white head. Fruity and flowery aroma, with gooseberries. Sublime real ale mouthfeel. Well balanced with high drinkability. Moderate bitterness in first aftertaste, with crystal malt coming later.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, Christmas gift from Tom. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Lively carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma of herbs, grain and freshly cut grass. Flavour of earthy, herbal, spicy hops - Slovakian hops are definitely evident in this. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation. As easy drinking as water, but, ironically, it’s all a bit watery and the flavour feels diluted.

Cask at Moorings, Aberdeen. It pours clear golden amber with a small white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, citrus, dough, brioche and fruit loaf. The taste is crisp, citric, doughy, nut, straw, dried fruits and some underlying sweetnes with a set finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A rather nice golden bitter. Well-rounded and quaffable.

For sake of social interaction just some notes. Quite mediocre ale, some herbal and earthy hops and bit bready malt. Feels bit light.
