1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale straw, the aroma is mostly pale malt and just a little bit of earthy-mossy hop and mushroomy yeast. Light bitterness, lots of yeasty character, mushrooms and stronger overaged brie stuff, and the hops are a shadow. Not to mention a brutal, skullsplitting whack of diacetyl. Honestly, the beer is not as described ("citrusy" and all that) and tastes old. The problem with that is that it has a BBD of Nov/14, this is Aug/13 and I bought it at the brewery. That says it all for me - it’s just not a good beer and clearly the brewery doesn’t care about it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
30.01.2014. 0,5l Bottle. Spesialbutikken Vaaland, Bryne. Golden yellow colour with white head. Very nice soft hoppy sroma at first. Body is rather thin but all in all together with the hops, its ok. Aftertaste is also soft and gives a soft grassy aftertaste with notes of straw. Nice soft beer with ok flavours, and its more hops than malt.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
