"Premium Scottish Lager"
A "gathering" of ingredients from around the world: Hops from the Czech Republic, and the U.S., Belgian pilsener malt, German yeast, and Scottish water take their own good time to combine and produce a delicious, crisp, citrusy lager.

Dobry lager. dobrze odfermentowany. Bez cukru z mnostwem cytrusowego aromatu zarowno w smaku jak i zapachu. Chmielny posmak zastosowanych chmieli. Ladna zolta jasna barwa. Piana slabo sie trzyma i jest niewielka i gruboziarnista

garthicus (2889) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 3, 2013
Appearance: nice yellow colour, lots of visible carbonation with a medium white head. Aroma: Very grassy, hay, melon, some slight citrus, peppery too with coriander. Flavour: very grassy, hay again, actually quite hoppy, a little skunky, lots of malt too with a long grassy caramel finish.

I live in central europe and I know how a good craft has to taste. I have had many from dozens of micro-breweries in the last 2 years. this one is not bad, however, the citrus character in this lager is wrong IMO. I assume it comes from using the US hops. anyway, I love lagers and this one is different. it’s not bad but I am not used to this kind of lagers. Overall this beer is mote and more enjoyable with every sip!

Pale straw. Big white head. Lacing galore. Now the bad. Roasted corn in the nose and mouth. Some malt in the mouth but overrun by corn. Pass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

laiti (7910) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2013
50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 18.05.2010
Aroma has English hops, some grainy malt and distant floral notes. Flavour is rather malty with grainy notes, English hops, hay, citrus and hints of biscuits. Not the most typical beer in this style but good anyway.
