3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line:
Citrusy hops and their spicy, wooden bitterness evolve in a lean body tainted with mild diacetyl.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the misty blond.
-The hop bitterness is quite salient, almost reducing drinkability.
-Mouthfeel is however geared towards drinkability.
-Malts contribute but a few sugars.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Unclear gold colored body, with a small blond lace on top. Mild aroma of doughy, lightly toasted malts. A whiff of yellow fruits and earthy hops. Light to medium full. Taste is not entirely fresh. A light sourish-sweet malt base with some stale bittering hops. Some fruity bitterness in a short ending. [Draft at Pingvinen, Bergen. 05.09.13]
