Pours clear golden with bubbly white 1-finger head, retention is moderate, reduction to a ring of froth and nice laces. Aroma is grainy and crisp, grassy notes. Delicate balance between malt body and hop bitter finish. Moderate carbonation. Excellent suggestion among other lagers.

Pours a nice colour with excellent head and lacing. Carbonation is medium.

The aroma is stunning for a lager. Grapefruit notes combine with breadiness in an exciting way that makes you say "this is classy" before you've even taken a sip. It's got more and better aroma than any lager I've yet tried.

The taste is as good as the smell. It's got the sweet honey flavour that is present in a good Munich Helles and the bitterness of a German Pilsner. There is a satisfying bready backbone to the taste as well. The lingering bitter after taste has you wanting another sip fast. I got plenty of lovely citrusy notes too. Surprising. wonderful, interesting and tasty. Herbal hop, tropical fruits, malty back bone.... it's all here!

Schiehallion really is an lager that is not "boring". It has an abundance of flavour and some ale like characterisics but is still most definitely a lager. It's refreshing and drinkable but full flavoured and enigmatic. A pretty amazing beer. Haven't tasted a better lager than this yet.

My mark out of one hundred would be 90.
