4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at cardinal,
Golden, clear in the glass, small white foam.
Good aroma with sitrus.
Heavy bitternes with some resins, and it’s surpricing that a beer with this light body and maltbase can handle all the hops.
It’s a well brewed lager with a crisp finish, and i guess it will age well. But i didn’t help with that, i had one more.

200ml draught at Crowbar & Bryggeri. Cloudy grey-golden body, missing head, spotty lacing to the glass. Smell of grassy hops, hints of fruits as well. Semi-dry flavours of lemon and grass. Dry bittering hops to the ending, rather long-lived. Medium bodied. Good stuff, drinks well (Oslo 19.06.2014).

Pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus, catpiss and hint of butterscotch. Taste is light sweet and medium to heavy bitter with a long citrus and bitter finish. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Henriks. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a small, off-white head. Pine cones, resins, and some peaches in the aroma. Not much malts. It’s quite bitter on the palate, with peaches and some grapefruit peel in the flavor. Medium body, quite dry, soft carbonation. Bitter fruity finish. Some diacetyl all the way, else it’s a quite nice one. 140615

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at cardinal. Pours golden with a small white head. Aromas packed with citrusy hops. Clean and crisp flavors. Good dry finish.
NB. Tried this about 14 days later, and the beer had a strong butterscotch aroma and flavor. When I tried this the first time this wasn’t there. I don’t blame the brewers or the beer for this change.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Schouskjelleren, march 7th 2013. My second ABC, enjoyed after the firewood stout. Hazy light golden, staying medium foamy offwhite head. Quite hoppy nose, tropical peach, mango, hints of cocos. Dry lager taste with a continued fruity dominance, peach, grapefruit, mango. As expected a solid bitterness, ending with a dry and fruity finish. Absolutely my kind of a prem lager.
