Cask, at Helgi’s, Kirkwall. Gold, thin but lasting white head, fine condition. Pleasant fruity sweet malt and a delicate happiness in the nose, quite fruity in the mouth with a hint of melon and a pleasant undercurrent of hop bitterness that lingers in the finish.

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.
