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

Graham77 (266) - - 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.

gegwilson (1381) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
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.

mighty_meadow (233) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - NOV 6, 2014
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.

djoeye (1725) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2014
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. [50cl brown bottle, abv4.0%, BB feb.2015, B@K skanssi Turku, T@höme]

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.

jamestulloch (1512) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 16, 2014
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.
