Copper-nut-brown, frothy dark white beige head with good lacings. Aromas of nuts, bready malts, light toast and some butterscotch develop. Softly carbonated, soft texture and medium body. Juicy malt center light herbal bitterness with a medium finish. Bit more oomph than the british version.

500 ml brow bottle purchased and consumed near St. Andrews, Scotland.

Clear red-brown body with a fine bone-colored head.
As hoppy as an Amer. Pale ale, but with a darker malt mix. Excellent hop/malt and bitter/sweet balance.
O: another solid and recommended offering from Orkney.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear red beer with a thick frothy head and a smell of dry, spicy malt. Flavour follows that up with a touch of hop and an almost smoky finish. There’s a touch of citrus running through it as well which makes it feel quite a bit fresher too.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a shinny copper with golden hues and a creamy white head. Aroma is faint fruits and not much else. Flavor is nutty bittersweetness with some very slight woody and vanilla notes, with a short but gentle fruity/ bitter aftertaste. Medium to light palate, a touch watery but sessionable and just enough flavor to keep it interesting.
