Beer Spotlight- Dragonhead Stout Orkney Breweries

Brewery – Orkney Brewery
A perfect beer.
Dragonhead is a legendary stout: dark, intense and fully-flavoured, it is our tribute to the Vikings and their cultural legacy in Orkney.

On the nose, this black stout has a smooth roasted malt aroma giving bitter chocolate, dark roasted coffee and Smokey notes balanced by hints of spicy Goldings hop.

On the palate, the dark roasted malts combine to give a rich, rounded palate with chocolate, toast and nut flavours, with a satisfying spicy hop finish.

Style: Golden Ale/Blond Ale
Alloa, Clackmannanshire, Scotland
ABV: 3.9%
COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden Ale is a popular style of pub ale, drunk as refreshment whilst blethering to pals or singing along in the pub. With light, fresh hoppy aromas, a soft, malty texture and creamy finish, Session slips down like fresh Scottish air!
Tasting Notes
Pours amber like a decent lager. Aroma of orange, marmalade, hay, light spice. Taste is well balanced with a slight tart, spiced orange finish due to the citrus. Easy to drink with gentle carbonation and nice mouthfeel. Orange becomes more prevelant as you get down the glass.
