Brewed in Edinburgh by Caledonian with locally-produced Maritime malt (just the malt: no wheat, maize, rice or oats), using three different hops from three of the great brewing regions of Europe:
the Hallertau Hersbrucker hop from Bavaria (floral and fruity), the Saaz hop from the Czech Republic (earthy, spicy – peppery) and the Strisselspalt from France’s Alsace region (honey and mint).

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 03/03/2016

Appearance:

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma:

Herbal crusty French banquette with honey and mint aromas from the Strisselspalt hops.

Taste:

Delicately spicy and citrusy with herbal bready notes and crushed mint leaves.

Aftertaste:

Lingering crushed mint leaves, piney hops and cracked black pepper spice.

Overall:

Edinburgh's lager, like the city itself, is full of character with distinctive crushed mint flavours throughout and a cleansing, lightly black pepper spiced finish.
