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.

Palme (3474) - 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.
