3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the Mini Pris in downtown Alesund. Poured a clear light amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is light malt, yeast and citrus. The flavour is medium to light bitter, with a smooth, malt, hop bitter palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Not one of their better beers in my opinion.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Pleasant base cereals are met by salient minerals in this effervescent and efficient Golden Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the misty straw gold.
-Light fruitiness flows underneath it all.
-Drinkability is high, but the beer doesn’t have many ’memorable’ factors...
-Hop character is really low.
On tap at Cafe Tre Bror, Voss.
