2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, see through yellow/orange beer with a white head. Some toffee, caramel, bread, roasted coffee (like in the air around a coffee factory) and citrus notes on the nose. Smells very nice. The body is light and watery. Mouth feel is soft and round. The hops is about the same quality as in a normal pils. A bit buttery. Some caramel. Slight grassy bitterness. The aroma promised something a lot better and more interesting. This one’s rather dull disappointingly.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden colour with small head and decent lacing. Aroma is a little grassy and lemon hops. Taste is of mild citrus hops, pale lager malts, grain and floral notes. Too carbonated for my liking. Drinkable but uninteresting.

Shared bottle at Cardinal. Pours clear straw coloured with no head at al. Aroma of light struck hops, far from delicious. Taste is mild with a strange artificial bitterness.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Kveldens første på mandag i annen 25.feb-12: ABV på 4.4%, og som bitterhumle er brukt First Gold. Aromahumler er EKG og Cascade. Klar gylden med hvitt skum. Lite aroma og daff ettersmak. Medium munnfylde. En ok og ganske frisk golden ale, hvis du liker stilen (noe Egil ikke gjør - han synes det er pingleøl).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light orange, darker yellow with pure white foam head, lacing to glass. Aroma is quite unique, hoppy, some yeast. Taste is also unique, bitter but in a different way, have to get used to this beer. Dry aftertaste. (Moscow 201302)

10th October 2011
Bright clear gold - amber beer, tiny white head. Crisp palate. Fresh lagerish malt. Reasonable hops - trace of orange. Quite a carbonated sting in the finish. Fairly malty aftertaste. Mild bitter linger. Not bad, pretty drinkable.
