"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.

Lonick (790) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2012
A lager the way it should be. Crisp and dry not fat and sweet as the normal mass produced lagers are.

stravale (2478) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JAN 2, 2012
Bottle from Alesela
Light straw...crystal clear...big frothy white head....good lacing
Aroma is light - spicy hops, some citrus hops, light pale malts
Taste of spicy light grassy hops...some citrus...good light sweet pale malt background - light flavour overall but good for a lager
Palate - soft carb, light to medium body, light sweet malts and some bitterness, smooth, slightly oily texture. Finish - sweet malt and spicy hops lingers a little with a bit of bitterness.
Overall - Light in aroma and flavour but it’s a good lager - far far better than the macro crap - underrated here IMHO (No way it deserves RB of 28) - maybe it’s better bottled?

_angst_ (3443) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2011
330 ml bottle @ BAJT on November 24. Sampled thanks to a friend. Pours pale golden with a fluffy white head that dissipates while leaving some trace on the glass. Smell is stale and spicy with some wood and peat. Taste is very sweet with wood, vanilla, some sweet fruits and a slight hoppy bitterness. Finish is malty sweet.

ClubGonzo (4611) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2011
Bottle from Meny Grønland Torg, Oslo. Shared with Palme and RuneStumo in an Oslo park near Youngstorget, in lack of a better place to drink. :-) Clear golden body, small creamy white head. Nose is worty malt tones and hints of grass and pine. Taste is wort again, pale malts, hints of grass and pine. Forgettable.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2011
0.5l bottle from Meny Grønland, shared with ClubGonzo and RuneStumo in a random Oslo park. Pours a orange-golden body with a small sidesticking white head. Aroma is hoppy, a bit sharp but also anonymous. Average carbonated with a light oily mouthfeel. Flavors are mild hoppy with hints of burned berries, grass, malts and dust. Not my thing, but drinkable.
