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.

Bottle. Light and fruity with a metallic citrus flavour. Lacking in character.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy yellow body with a quickly settling white head. Nose has fresh citrus notes, hay and resin. Taste is mildly bitter and dry, finishing with a smooth, lingering bitterness. Carbonation is on the lower side ad palate feels suprisingly full. A nice, refreshing drink!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour, smell and optics are all good to very good. The foam crown is solid but not lasting. Tastes like a British pint through and through. Slightly bitter and more tasty in smaller doses. All in all a good but not overwelming beer.

Bottle at Home.
Lovely clear amber ale with a decent white frothy head. Hoppy malty notes, not massive hops but noticeable. Semi fruit finish, dry finish. Not Twig, pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Notes of citrus and grass in the aroma. Pours nicely carbonated with a golden appearance and white head. The taste is sweet with medium hop bitterness and hints of apricot noticeable. The body is fairly thick but overall a highly quaffable and refreshing drink if not remarkable. Quite lager like in a lot of ways but overall far superior.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from a Glasgow ASDA. Amber with a thin off-white head. The taste is light citrus with a weird tobacco after taste. Can’t say I overly enjoyed this one.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden honey colour with big thin white head. Lemon straw biscuit and slightly biscuity taste. Nice wee tickle on the tongue
I’ve had more interesting beers but this is hitting the spot just fine.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden body, persistent off white head, varied lacing.
Aroma; floral hops, faint liquorice, pale malts.
Taste; pale malts, yellow apple, very mild hops, notes of white bread, bun dough, faint berries. Bread, berries, fruitiness and sweetness in finish.
Easy on palate, with fine carbonation and acceptable body. Mild, easy, alright.

Clear pale gold, smallish white head with okay retention. Nose is citrus, malt, fruitydusty notes, hops, minerals. Flavor is lemony tones mixed with malt, grass, hops in the finish. Very drinkable and airy, not too interesting though.
