"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.

A lager the way it should be. Crisp and dry not fat and sweet as the normal mass produced lagers are.

nilsas (1230) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2014
Litt syrlig duft av sitron og hvete. Dunkel gul farge. Lite skum. Søtlig litt sødmende smak med en anelse sitron i ettersmaken.

Holmen1 (2306) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2014
Flaske fra Matkroken, Stokka: lys strågul og med fint men akk så kort skum. Litt aroma av søtsaker og blomster, ikke mye som minner om humle. Søt maltsmak med svært beskjeden humle. Dette er for tynt og til å være "brewed for maximum flavour". Og hverken crisp eller cirtussy.

Keg (the Bull and Last) - Light, refreshing and balanced taste. Not too carbonated and with the hint of citrus and hops blended through.

wimpyjoe (3561) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle from Booths, Media City UK. Pale gold, no head. Lager style ale with a very smooth tasting malt. There’s some hop too which combines to give it a fair taste with a hint of fruit.

ThirstyBird (1485) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 17, 2014
Pours a hazy light yellow with a lofty white head. The aroma is grain, mild fruit, floral. The taste follows the smell ending nice and crisp with a touch of spiciness. The body is light and slick with fine, nicely structured carbonation. This is a very pleasant lager.

allmyvinyl (2922) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2014
500ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours pale straw yellow, thin white head. Aromas are lemon citrus, light sweet malts. Taste had a good bitterness, not really lager, more a blonde. Good though.
