COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered; Cask: Special - 2009.
"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.

dantheman278 (1358) - SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2012 Bottle at home. Pour is yellow amber with a big white head. Surprisingly good lacing. Sweetcorn, grass, caramel nose. Taste is slightly sweet, toffee and some soft lager grains (in a good way). Some nice citrus on the finish. I really think this is underrated, a decent lager.

AshtonMcCobb (2313) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 24, 2011
50cl. It pours a pale golden, steady bubbles and very generous head, in fact an excellent head for a lager and it hangs around almost indefinitely. The nose has pale matt, a touch of sweetcorn and maybe even a metallic note. On the taste there is more of the sweetcorn and metal but a lack of much malt. The palate is well balanced - bigger than expected structure, a creamier than expected texture and a very zingy clean finish. Overall, not the tastiest beer but looks great and very well balanced.
