The youtube on this from the brewery says it uses Pale, Crystal and Wheat malts and cascade hops. It’s the wheat I think that gives the beer such a good head retention and mouthfeel. Reminded me very much of B1 which is surprising as this used Northern Brewer and Golding. Yellow Hammer has one plenty of awards and you can taste why!

TBone (14902) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 22, 2014
Bottle 500ml (K-Kamppi)
Golden color, some hazyness, good off-white head, lace. Aroma is grainy, light hops. Light to medium-bodied, reasonably robust for this ABV. Flavor is grainy, bready, some citrus from Cascade. Lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Typical grainy organic malt flavors ruin a bit of fruityness of Cascade hops.

0.5 Bottle from Pulkovsky Universam, St Petersburg. Bags of flavour for a 4.0% brew. Lovely and refreshing with lots of citrus. Finish is a lovely tart grapefruit but then goes quite metallic at the very end. Not enough to spoil it though, will definitely drink again.

ERB92 (576) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2014
Toffee,grains, fruits and citrus in the aroma. Golden with a off white head. Medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Light to medium body with a average carbonation. Bitter finish. Overall a really nice one. Beautiful fruity aroma and a quite bitter flavour, but still nicely balanced.

Tap at Craft Man. Bright, brilliant gold with a medium, fine head. Malty, lemony nose, slightly Belgian yeastiness, honey, orange, lightly spicy. Sweet, thin, oily. Lemon and spicy yeast. A bit thin and weak, somewhat watery and metallic. OK.
