Gentle aroma, honey, malts very slight citrus. Taste is sweet, not especially hoppy, good malt. Hints of honey and cereal, leading to a resin finish. Lightly bitter. Very drinkable and refreshing, more than the sum of it’s parts.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light yellow with medium head. Very nice hoppy aroma, some hints of exotic fruits, mostly pineapple, but very slightly. Taste is not too dry, but not strong. Medium to high carbonation, with a slightly fruity body, and moderately alcoholic and short aftertaste. Very drinkable, but a typical American Pale Ale...

Very interesting mouth tingle. Nice malt/hop balance. It’s a different kind of pale ale, but alright nonetheless.

Got the last bottle they had at Hoppy Loft. Poured a hazy amber-gold body. Light herbal aroma, simple. Light malty taste ending in herbal bitterness, showing some notes of honey from time to time. Balanced, but really nothing special.

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff nov-11: Mørk gylden med deilig duft av Nelson Sauvin-humlen. Stikkelsbær og lyse frukter. Frisk og god, ikke for søt og litt tørr ettersmak. Verdt å prøve en gang til.
