COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Things move slowly on this island – which suits our lager down to the ground. The rich and full flavour of this thirst quenching drink is down to its unusually long fermentation. Whether it’s the salt in the sea air that blows through the brewery, or the quality of the water – we’re not sure – but we think you will agree there is something special about this lager.

golden orange colour ... little grassy hop aroma ... fruity ... juicy ... thirst quenching hop ... touch too sweet.

Leighton (21231) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2011
Bottle at East Crowdon Tasting. Clear gold pour with a small, white head. Cereal malt and light lemon on the nose. Pretty sweet flavor, cereal, some citrus notes, faint leafy bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes sweet, simple, mild grain and cereal. Easy drinker.

Sigmund (7458) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2007
Bottle, at RBESG 2007 in Glasgow, Grand Tasting. Golden coloured beer, large head. Pleasant hoppy and yeasty aroma, slightly oaky, nearly a vinous character. The flavour has the same characteristics as the aroma, but is less vinous.

3.4
Scopey (14699) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle from Peckhams Union Sq, Aberdeen. It pours pale yellow, with a thin foamy white head and moderate carbonation. The nose is hay, cereal, grass and white bread. The taste is lemon, lime, white bread, cereal, grass and biscuit, with a bready finish. It’s simple, smooth and really easy to drink. A solid lager.

AshtonMcCobb (6581) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 6, 2012
Pours golden with a nice prop head. Nose is metallic, spicy and herbaceous. Taste of more herbs, some pale male. Palate is well balanced - light to medium body n texture, clean finish. Overall, a well made pils.

Train. Tart funk, cider hints, lambic. sulphue. This is clearly infected but i still quite liked it and if this is how its ment to be its alot better than many scottish ales.

allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 27, 2014
500ml bottle from Scottish Real Ale Shop. Pours hazy pale gold, thin white head. Aromas of lemon, lager. Taste is very fruity too, mostly fresh lemon though. Light body, crisp finish. OK.

3.2
KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2007
RBESG 2007. Fruity, with a liberal use of hops, giving both flowers and dryness. Some yeastiness, but not too much. A fine lager.

3.2
omhper (25093) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2007 Bottled at RBESG ’07. Deep golden, very lively. Lemony and buttery. Quite dry and refreshing with good malt structure and short salty finish.
