500ml bottle from Stockmann Helsinki. Pours copper-coloured with white, creamy head. Malty aroma with some herb-like hops and grassy tones. Hoppy bitter flavour with some grain and malt. Bitter finish with some sweet malt.

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)

500ml bottle. Clear amber colour with a generous white head. Musty malt aroma, taste is malt, a little grass, dry finish. Ok

Mr_Pink_152 (5005) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2016
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.

Flasche 0,5l: Kräftiges Gold, etwas mittelporiger Schaum; in der Nase sehr süß und malzig, schokoladig, deutlich Karamell, leicht nussig; im Körper kräftig malzig, angenehme Süße, leichte Bitterkeit, kräftige Würze, Röstaromen; angenehmer trockener Nachgang

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.

JorgeLee (2116) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2015
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...

Russo (2011) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2015
Golden amber color with thin white head that last for while. Aroma is corny, yeasty and malty. Flavor is pretty much the same as aroma but with hints of hops. Low to medium carbonation and a light to medium body with a dry light bitter finish.
