2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,33 flaske på rbhd-samling hos Odd Gunnar: Cascade og Polaris er humlene her, men aromaen er antakelig redusert pga bb. 311013. Allikevel behagelig og kombinert med en lett maltsødme. Fin og lettdrikkelig, om enn med en noe vandig munnfølelse og slutt. Må prøves i en ferskere utgave.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared 330 ml bottle, from CITTI-Markt Flensburg. BB date 31.10.2013. ABV is 5.2%. Moderate but pleasant aroma of Cascade and Polaris hops, also hints of toffee. Pleasant easy drinking flavour, fairly dry - despite the hop varieties, it tastes more like a British pale ale than an APA.

Dark golden. Slightly sour aroma with moderate bitterness. Finely balanced taste with lots of bitter lime marmelade. Fine drinkability, but not particularly hopfenbetontes.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle:   A bit of a grainy example, hoppy, but also some musty wet stale cardboard like flavors.   Those come out much more as it warms up.   The aroma says citrusy hops, but not as citrusy on the tongue.   Its a little astringent.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Okay start, but needs to be brighter, less grainy, and actually more citrusy or floral.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle. BBE 30.04.2015.
Pours clear golden color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is nice and floral, some orange peel, some hops and hay. Flavor isn’t quite as refreshing, some grainy notes as well as some nuts, otherwise fruity and moderately hoppy. Light and very easy to drink. Nothing special though.
