"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.

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 (4413) - 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.

rosenbergh (9502) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 15, 2011
500 ml bottle. Finland.
Clear pale golden colour with small white head. Grainy malty aroma with some sweet floral notes. Flavour is pleasantly balanced grainy maltiness and citrusy bitter hoppiness. Nice. Or even nicer.

lusikka (7624) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2011
500 ml bottle.
Pours a clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of flowers, corn and some hops. Flavour of crispy hops, citrus, mild fruits and some yeast. Light bodied with a slick mouthfeel and a dry, slightly hoppy finish. Not bad at all.

Blairgus (3725) - California, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Bright, crystal clear w/ bubbles malty straw aroma thin/med body w/ med carbonation delicate, if any, hops. primarily malt flavours no hops so it’s just male if craft brewers are going to mke lager, put SOME hops in!

courtesy of Philipp and Thomas - hazy golden-blond colour with a little white foam left; a decent grapefruity hoppiness; medium-bodied and a smooth palate, decently bitter and with a long fruity hoppy finish - slightly perfumy and fairly aromatic
