Dark Reserve Lights Up
Take a small glass and disregard both wine and whisky. Go for the prize-winning Dark Reserve Ale of The Orkney Brewery. It has caught the judges' eyes and tongue and won a remarkable accolade. Its 10% proof-tag does help. Then look at the image below of the North Ronaldsay lighthouse and see whether it resembles a dark island beam or a glimpse of magic from a bottle.
