Bottle @home. Pours golden/orange, big frothy white head. Nose is hoppy, fruity, some spices, big black peppercorns. Taste is along the same lines without the pepper.

The Orkney brewery is one of my favourites but not to sure about the raven ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pale Gold in colour. Malty; toasty biscuity malts. Hoppy; resinous spicy hops. Fruity; tangy citrus lemon. Lovely malt/hop/fruit balance. Dry bitter hop finish. Full flavoured for low ABV. Very refreshing. Liked this. Nice beer! (2010-03)

Bottle at home. Golden Amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma has born, and malty, the taste follows this nicely with a light hoppy bitter finish. Light body.

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 2, 2015
Golden color with some foam. The smell is malt. The taste is a bit malty and bitter in a solid balance. The aftertaste is like the beer: not very special, but very solid.

Bottle from Beer Hawk. Golden in colour, quite high carbonation, white bubbly foam. Initially tastes like a slightly minerally slightly grainy bitter, but a nice earthy fruity hop bitterness grows on you mouthful by mouthful. By the end of the glass, very moreish and tasty, could certainly be a great all-night beer. One for the drinkers...
