3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled at Skihytta, Trysil. Very cloudy orange, small head. Light perfumy mango aroma. Light-medium bodied with fairly clean mouthfeel. Vague tropical fruit hoppiness followed by salty bitterish finish. A pleasatn quencher.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy dark yellow, rather large creamy white head. Aroma is rather sharp and stingy, metallic, grainy, bready, and grassy. Surprising lack of malts. Flavour is quite malty though, nice and full. Toasted and grainy malts.
Carbonation is sparkly and refreshing. Body is light. Clearly one dimensional, but a whole damn lot better than the macro lagers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, kindly hunted down by OleR. It’s a hazy, orangey beer with a minimal off-white head on top. Peachy, fruity nose with some malts, promises of bitterness. The flavor is quite decent, but except considering the style, rather boring. Wouldn’t shy away from drinking a few in the summer heat though. Quite sweetish, fruity and with pale malts, but not very bitter. Dries up towards the finish, which has the to style appropriate bitterness. I wonder if this really should be classified as a pale lager. Might be the lack of filtration and pasteurization that does it. (090820).

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Hazy golden. Small white head. Nutty malt aroma. Initial aroma is rather sweet and caramelly with a nutty edge. Fine carbonation. Crisp hop flavours and bitterness. Nicely balanced. Medium-bodied. Nice bready malt flavours. Texture is a little powdery. Earthy hops in the finish. Quite enjoyable, if not a little too sweet.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Thanks to mybestfriend. Dark golden colour. Aroma: fruit, vegetables, wet cardboard, some sweetness. Flavor: a bit sweet, woody/grassy, faint bitterness, apples, vegetables. Feels a bit like a bad soft drink with too little carbonation. Watery mouthfeel.
