Very hoppy in its aroma and a suitably orange appearance to match. Taste again is predominantly of hops and that is no bad thing, certainly not one of the world’s top beers but a perfectly drinkable brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden pour. The nose is a little bit spicy and fruity. Clean MO malt base and a bit of fruity yeast. Pretty nice, straightforward golden ale. A bit of astringent bitterness.

500ml bottle kindly shared by Finn at a session at his place. Pours a bright golden coloured body under a pearl white head, slowly diminishing. Spare lacing. Aroma is mild caramel and leafy hops. Likewise, the taste character is made up by a smooth mix of brown malts and leafy hops. Bittersweet endnotes. Medium bodied. Fine partner to our meat (Tromsø 10.12.2014).

From old notes - golden colour with decent white head. Light aroma of citrus and taste similar. Nothing particularly wrong, an easy drinking beer but no stand out.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden with good white head. Pleasant aroma, but does not live up to the hoppy hype - there’s some citrus/grapefruit aroma over biscuity malt. Light bodies with soft frothy carbonation. Pleasant balanced foretaste of light malt and some fruity grassy notes, but seems a little thin afterward. Reasonable bitterness build up into the finish, but again it doesn’t live up to the description.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A reasonable middling beer. Tangy and bite up front, crisp and quenching, but not an aroma to savour or write home about. reasonable body but this isn’t a full beer, and there isn’t much length in the taste. But it did the trick and for that it’s worth a go.
