Frovigalning (2884) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2013
Sample at SMÖF 2013. Very mild smell, some bready malt, hint of fruity hops. Similar taste. Slightly harsh mouthfeel. Feels a bit off, funky almost, at least not entirely fresh.

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 1, 2013
courtesy of Per - cloudy dark blond beer under a solid foamy white head; nice lacework; dusty and yeasty, citric and grapefruity hoppiness underneath; some malt sweetness, a soft palate and an earthy astringence, residual and a bit artificial sweetness; light chewy flowery and furity hoppy tones

Small head. Slightly yeasty fragrance. Hazy, darkish yellow. Medium body, fruity nose, peaches and citrus. Medium carbonation and flavor dominatied by bitter marmelade. The dark Boråsare is much better, but this is OK.

mzaar (1508) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2013
Flaska. Honungsfärgad öl, med kolsyrigt vitt skum. Snart försvinnande. Doftar friskt av apelsin, citron, nektarin och blomster. Samma återkommer i smaken, där apelsinen är väldigt framträdande. Beskan finns där, lite lätt i skuggan. Inte så framträdande, men inte heller dålig. Hade önskat mer kropp i den här ölen dock.

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2013
Bottled (thanks rlgk!). Slightly hazy golden colour with not too much head. Aroma is your average pale lager with some fruity and floral notes. Flavour is grainy, fruity and a bit earthy as well. Tastes more like an average small brewery pale lager than APA...
