3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from trade with Papsoe. It’s a hazy, slightly pale golden beer with some microfloaties and a white head. Some sourish notes on the nose, with fruits and lemon, hops and a little chalky touch. Fruity and malty-sweet with some grains, and piney hops giving a fine bitterness. Full-bodied. Long, piney, bitter finish. I suspect there’s something wrong with the bottle, as there were some sourish and chalky notes in the aroma. At least it wasn’t past BB-date. A very refreshing beer, not a big one, but a fine thirst quencher. (090213)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A golden ale with a fine head. The aroma is malty with notes of citrus and yeast. The same goes for the flavour, but it’s really not that interesting. A little too plain...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
EBF2008. The color is hazy golden and the head is creamy. The aroma has sweetness and notes of malt, fruit and yeast. The flavour has sweetness and notes of malt, citrus, fruit, yeast and a little yoghurt. I like it better than the first version, but it’s never going to be my beer – my loss...
