"A light and refreshing beer. A surprisingly full mouth-feel with a superior balance of malt and hop, and a rewarding fruit finish."

500ml bottle. Hazy golden colour with substantial white head. Very good mouth-feel from this beer with just the right viscosity and carbonation. Has a pleasant well balanced taste. Not the best of the Orkney beers but another very good one from the Sinclair brewery.

radassace (342) - SCOTLAND - FEB 14, 2017
Pours a light amber with a white head. Nose is sour apple, apricot and slightly sweet malt. Light mouth feel, taste is green apple, light caramel malt, apricot and lemon. Not bad, but not great either.

Borresteijn (7275) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2017
50cl Bottle, thanks Bob & Rosemary! Clear deep golden colour, white head. Aroma of unripe fruits, light leafy, hint of toffee, medium sweet, apple. Flavour is light to medium sweet, fruity, red apple, green banana, firm bitterness underneath, bitter finish, hint of toffee. Light bodied, watery.

Iznogud (3926) - CROATIA - MAR 3, 2016
Bottle, 500 ml at the Clachan, Dornie. Pours golden, white head. Malty, bit perfumy. Sweet, light bodied, light bitter finish. Bland and disappointing.

darkseduction (750) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - FEB 27, 2016
Flasche 50cl. Typische Pale-Ale Malzfarbe, leichte Trübung. In der Nase fruchtige Hopfen und obergärige Hefe. In Antrunk viel kaltgehopftes, schön in die Malzigkeit eingebunden, Sehr erfrischend und sehr komplex angesichts des Alkoholgehalts. Sehr gelungen!

Thomas_W1 (869) - Rastatt, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2015
Flasche 0,5l: Kräftiges Gold, klar mit einem festem mittelporiger Schaum; frische, leicht süße Nase mit malzigen Noten, etwas Hopfen, Äpfeln und Getreide; angenehm frischer Körper mit deutlichen Hopfennoten, Grapefruitzest und angenehmer Bitterkeit im Abgang

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 26, 2015
Clear reddish golden color with little foam. Hoppy grass like smell. The taste is mild, sweetish and has a moderate bitterness with a grass hoppy note. The aftertaste is a little bitter and mainly very mild. Nothing special, but a nice solid beer.

panzerwolf (353) - FINLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Pours light gold. Taste of hops, citrus, a bit of grass. Has a nice feel to it, mixture of bitterness and sweetness to balance each other out. Enjoyed it!

Lively golden beer with a thick bubbly head. Hoppy, citric scent. Very lemony flavour. It’s quite tart initially but even with the hops kicking in it does mellow out a bit and the aftertaste actually ends up being quite sweet. Slightly chilled this’d be spot-on to sit in the garden with.

nihtila (3670) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2015
22.11.2013. Mieto tuoksu, sitrusta raikkautta ja hieman humalaa. Makukin säilyttää miedon linjan. Hieman makeahko mallas, pikkaisen humalaa. Aika varovainen esitys, mutta toisaalta tasapainoinen eikä tässä mitään vikaa ole,

shoestring (409) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - MAR 17, 2015
Not unpleasant. Amber with nice head. Mown grass light citrus. Preferred to other couple of Orkney blonds I’ve had
