jamestulloch (1586) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 14, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2014 Bottle from Aldi and cask from the brewery. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Light lacing. Aroma of biscuit, grapefruit, wood and apricot. Flavour of pine, orange, lemon and cereal. Thin body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. A really juicy Pale Ale. One of Orkney’s finest.

ianwelby (546) - SCOTLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Light golden beer with a thick, frothy head and a light, grassy aroma. Initial flavour is a sharp, floral grapefruit hit and a sweeter citrus touch in the back of the mouth. A pleasant, balanced bitter backtaste lingers even from the first couple of mouthfulls.

Weefannybaws (106) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - JUN 6, 2014
500ml bottle from Aldi. Light golden ale with plenty of bubbles - fizzy like a lager. Malt and orange on the nose with bitter citrus aftertaste. Not the best, but perfect with crisps or nuts.

Holmen2 (1232) - NORWAY - MAY 20, 2014
Clear and pale golden. White head and lacing. Refined aroma of citrus, newly mowed grass and flowers. Fine mouthfeel and appropriate bitterness. A superbly balanced pale ale with high drinkability.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
Amber colour. Slightly fruity hop aroma w some light crystal or biscuity malt character. Sweetish and a fair bit if crystal chewiness, along with a slightly earthy hop accent. Good pale, if a bit on the intense side.
