Nice beer, better than expected. Tastes like a helles. Not outstanding, just a sessionable good, tasty ale. I’d drink it again.

Braudog (5599) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle. Poured a golden, hazy, straw color, the head is big and rocky, unremitting. The aroma is musty, outdoorsy. This drinks with an almost American fruitiness, citric and acidic, almost grapefruity, but with a bit of European funk. Very nice. (#4990, 4/16/2013)

Kobal (64) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 8, 2013
Pours bright gold with a lasting white head. Smells soapy with mild grass and floral aromas, reminiscent of spring, but with a little skunkiness underneath. Taste is somewhat subdued with some dry hoppiness coming through as citrus and a touch of mint. Not much of the malt flavor stands out in the flavor but it contributes to the body, making it more full than expected. The idea of an English brew done American style is interesting, but the end result seems to dumb down both ends of the equation.

Pours hazy gold into an English pint. Bright white head with little retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Mild citrus aromas. Soft with sweet caramel and nuts upfront turning to grapefruit in the lasting finish.

Slightly hazed, dark gold, tall, frothy slightly off-white head. Clean, bright, hop aroma. Taste is piney hops, citrus. Lightly malted. Smooth with a pleasant, light bittering.

gunnar (5160) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2013
Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours clear golden with a tiny white head. Aroma of lightstrucked hops, light spicy with weak malts. Taste is moderate sweet malts, nice spicy hops at the end, tickeling mouthfeel, good one.

Holmen1 (2315) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2013
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff jan-13: En "East Coast Blonde" iflg etiketten, og det er ingen dum beskrivelse. Lite maltsmak, men desto klarere bitterhet preget av grapefrukt (som også kjennes i aromaen). Fin munnfylde og god ettersmak. Slett ingen dum blondine.
