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

Graham77 (233) - Glasgow, - 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.

Teennäinen fairy. Pysyttelee pahan puolella. Ei tällaisia jaksa juoda ellei ole pakko.

Bottle from Aldi. Clear golden body with a thin white head that holds well. Lively carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of apricot and hay. Simple flavour of cereal and lemon - it tastes similar to a Lager. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft fizz. A straightforward Golden Ale.

0,5L bottle. Pours clear golden with whiteish head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sweet, fresh fruits and malt. Taste is sweet, fruits, hay, malt and some bitterness. Finish is mild fruity and dry bitter. Overall: decent enough for a low alcohol brew, not too watery.

Scopey (6833) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle at home. It pours clear golden with a small white head. The nose is doughy, grainy, weak citrus and hay. The taste is bitter, toasty, doughy, dull sweetness, grass, citrus peel and pepper with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Straight-forward golden ale. Drinkable enough, but far from exciting.
