COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask
A hoppy golden pale ale with a resin, lemon, hop character.

Orkney comprises of 70 islands, 17 or 18 of which are inhabited. Each unique in its own way, locals and tourists travel internally by both sea and air. We use all pale malt and lots of New Zealand hops to create this hoppy but still sessionable low strength beer.

Ingredients: Water, barley malt (Maris Otter), wheat malt, Nelson Sauvin hops, yeast.

rnhov (15) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2017
Ilkley beer fest 2017, a 3.9% session bitter, i was expecting it to be hoppier as the notes said "..lots of NZ hops..", but unassuming if its meant to be an IPA.

3.2
rodsquad (335) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2017
Bottle from Aldi. Pours clear light copper with a thin white head. Nose has gentle orange citrus, little melted butter and mild toffee. Palate is light and refreshing with a light to moderate carbonation. Flavours initially bitter with earthy hop but washes away with a caramel maltiness. It’s a light citrus fresh ale with an earthy hop that threatens to over-balance but just holds on.

2.8
rosenbergh (11809) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 31, 2017
500 ml bottle. BB 12/2017. (K-Market) Tampere, Finland. Clear golden color with a small white head. Sweet fruity and floral hops, moderate bitterness, sugary sweetness and some caramel malt in the aroma. The flavor is piney and fruity hops, strong bitterness, sugary sweetness and some caramel malt. A bit unbalanced. Too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
