"A light and refreshing beer. A surprisingly full mouth-feel with a superior balance of malt and hop, and a rewarding fruit finish."

rosenbergh (7402) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2013
500 ml bottle. Ruby & the Fellas, Tampere, Finland. Cloudy pale golden colour with a small white head. Floral and fruity hops, malt and mild bitterness in the aroma. The flavour is floral hops, mild bitterness and some maltiness. Quite easy but not totally flavourless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Graham77 (281) - Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2013
500ml bottle. Hazy golden colour with substantial white head. Very good mouth-feel from this beer with just the right viscosity and carbonation. Has a pleasant well balanced taste. Not the best of the Orkney beers but another very good one from the Sinclair brewery.

berkshirejohn (4677) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2013
50cl bottle from Dobbies Garden Centre, Reading. Described as a Pale Ale on the bottle - and that seems a much more accurate description of this light, grassily hopped beer. It’s straw in colour with a billowing white head, and could even be mistaken for a lager; the aroma is grainy with a touch of wet grassy; it’s sweet and grainy in the mouth; with a light refreshing bitterness to finish. This goes to show that Orkney can manage soft and delicate as well as heavy and skull splitting.

Imaena (1887) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle. A pretty generic bolnde ale without much to set it apart. Give this a miss.

Bogh_89 (10) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2013
Golden color with a nice lasting white head. Aroma is low to medium intensity citrus hop. Taste is also predominatly hop that leaves a littel bitternes. Cant really pick up many malt flavors, maybe som pilsner. Mouthfeel is nice. Easy drinking beer.

dogbomb (968) - ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle. Very pale straw ale with a thick fluffy white head. Smell is a breezy lemon and peach. Quite a lovely fruity explosion in the mouth with that light touch of lemon and peach, with a sweet malt backbone. Quaffable and pleasant.
