ante (3374) - Stockholm, - JUN 4, 2011
Pours out in a clear golden colour with a low thick white head. Pale malts lemony and spicy hops in the aroma. Medium to light-bodied with notes of straw, lemon-zest grass and mild flowers with undertones of pale and biscuity malts. Crisp medium-bitter if a bit short finish of flowers, citric fruits and grass.

Nez fleuri et caramélisé, robe tirant sur l’ambré. En bouche, l’amertume prend le dessus, sans laissé vraiment de place aux arômes. Assez moyen.

500 ml bottle @ Henderson’s, Edinburgh, rated on 2015-07-28
Clear golden orange beer with big white head leaving lacing. Aroma has grapefruit, resin, peach and mango. Flavor has grapefruit, orange and malts. Palate is thin with strong carbonation and some bitterness. Finish has medium bitterness and feels a bit watery. Aftertaste has orange and grapefruit. Crisp and refreshing but too thin. Bonus for organic.

Initially promises much with a bit of a punchy nose and a good golden colour. Head last longer than some but the taste is a bit hollow and relies on the acidity to stand. Strawman to be honest.

Amber coppery pour with minimal head, smell is more grape than the advertised grapefruit. Stale citrus grows on you but the palette is not as fresh as I would like it. Overall pleasant combination of citrus and hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle from Tesco. Room temperature (cool kitchen) poured into tulip glass. Nice, light coloured ale. Very mellow and sweet at the beginning. Hard to pinpoint the flavours. Turns a bit earthy, wood, some light fruits but MOSTLY an earthy, dare I say organic taste. Finishes off with a hoppiness but not too bitter. Almost a sugar coated citrus. Nice.
