3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pale, yellow gold with fine pale white head. Aroma is faint hop and yeast. Visibly effervescent. Taste starts slightly sweet malt, then adds a subtle bitter hops note. Overall, the flavors are all very mild, clean, refreshing... it does this remarkably without being "lite" or watery.

Draft in San Francisco. One of my first craft beers so it holds a special place in my heart. Pours a bright orange gold with a nice white head. Nose is grain and malt. Taste adds some bitterness.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Pours amber-orange with medium off-white head, lively carbonation. Aroma is caramel, fruity, apple, spicy, sweet malts, custard, citrus. Taste is mostly sweet, little bitterness, but some sourness, not unlike biting an apple. Palate is fizzy, medium. Mild bitter aftertaste. Very pleasant, complex beer that reminds me of my grand mum’s caramel custard, just a bit more bitter.

Flaska från SB. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad vätska med två fingrar högt skum. Brödig doft med en antydan av karamell. Neutral beska. Funkar bra en solig sommarkväll.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smell is malt with a hint of hops. Taste follows the aroma pretty closely. The malt and hops are blending nicely and the taste, while not as strong as some craft beer, is great. This would be a great session beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a quite clear deep orange amber colour with small medium head. Smells malty, maple, slightly caramel honey; maybe a bit generic, but nice and fresh. Taste is a good sweet/malt and hoppy/citrus bitter blend, piny, slighlty spicy, very crisp, simple and tasty. Lively carbonation, and not that light bodied as you imagine, quite substantial for being 5%. It’s really ok beer, refreshing
