Released for Sainsbury’s Great Gritish Beer Hunt 2013
Great Glasgow band and great name for a beer. We coax the amazing aromas out of some NZ and Slovakian hops, blend with an eclectic bunch of light malts and cold condition on an infusion of cone hops mixed with freshly-pressed strawberries

scotty (1151) - SCOTLAND - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle Sainsburys Leven. Pale amber, thin white head, steady bead. Not as hoppy as I’d hoped for, also has an odd sweet/sour fruity flavour...which, I guess on reading the back label, comes from the addition of strawberries! Not really my type, had worse tho!

rodbod (188) - SCOTLAND - JUL 15, 2015
I couldn’t taste the NZ hops *or* the strawberries but nevertheless it’s a very refreshing lager. To be drunk only on a hot summer evening when you need a thirst quenching palate cleanser.

flying_pig (1424) - SCOTLAND - OCT 2, 2014
500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s (£2):
This one turned out to be a fairly average one from Williams Brothers, it definitely wasn’t a bad beer but at the same time it wasn’t one that I particularly enjoyed or would go back to again. The beer was sweet throughout but nothing else really stood out for me and I imagine this one will turn out to be a very forgettable beer.
