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).
