COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask and bottle.
We brew our beer next to cliffs battered by the Atlantic Ocean - the sea is a constant in Orkney’s way of life. This beer is a respectful Orcadian nod to the pale ales of America’s West Coast. Crystal malt gives the beer sweet body and US hops provide plenty of punchy, citrus flavours.

Ingredients: water, barley malt (Maris Otter, Crystal), wheat malt, hops (Citra, Nelson Sauvin, Simcoe).

TeijoA (66) - Turku, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2017
50 cl bottle, BBE 02/2018. Clear yellow beer, tall white head that gets smaller by the second. Soapy, buttery aroma with malt, cookie, grass and metal. Where did they manage to bury the Citra and Nelson Sauvin? Taste is malt, grass, metal. Pretty rubbish.
