The Orkney Brewery
(Blonde Ale) 4% ABV
Named after the lights of the aurora, regularly viewed in our northern skies.
Citrus flavours combine with hints of fresh bread: giving way to spice, citrus and apricot hoppiness. It has a delicious crisp hop character without being overly aggressive. Perfectly refreshing.
The Vikings used Stromness as a safe harbour when travelling to, from and round the Orkney Islands. This haven, or Hafn in old Norse, protected their long boats from the strong tidal streams, by its natural headland. This port still offers shelter for boats today, as it did long before the Norseman came to Orkney.
