2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml bottle from bestillingsutvalget at Vinmonopolet. Film-type layer, dotted spots at the glassware. Clear yellow gold body. Herbal hops and hints of bread to the nose. The flavour has got a rather dry character with hints of lemon and earthy malts. Dry, light bitterness to the end. Ok but not a great beer for the summertime (Tromsø, 26.08.2012).

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer pours a hazy golden orange color, and a quickly vanishing fizzy head. The aroma is primarily a dull, earthy hop character that is expected for an English-style pale/golden ale, but it lacks depth. The flavor profile is more varied, with a biscuity malt base balancing against a combination of lemony, grassy, and earthy hops. The fine, prickly carbonation drowns out any sense of complexity, though. Overall, this is a light and drinkable beer, but it is mostly uninteresting.

355ml bottle. Clear gold pour with a small white head. Aroma is light malt and light herbal hops. Taste is sweet, but not overly sticky, with a little grain and hops. Body was a bit thin. Overall, a good summer seasonal but not outstanding.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.355l bottle @ Henrik. A clear summer-golden body with a nice medium sized dense white head that’s leaving some nice lacings down the glass. A bit low on the aroma, some mild getetal tones, broccoli, sour malts. Not to pleasant really. Mild fizzing carbonation in a soft oily to watery texture. Mild flavors as well. Low on the bitterness, I get minerals and some mild citrus tones perhaps. An OK quencher and summer ale I guess, but all in all a bit dull and boring. 02.08.2012

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Helt okej, fruktig och blommig i smaken. Lagom besk, en trevlig törstsläckare i sommarvärmen.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Cafe Sør. Clear straw golden, tiny white head. Ligt aroma of bread and fruity hops, watery thin taste of sweet malt and hops. The taste isn’t bad, it’s just too weak. Finish is short and dry

Bottled. Very weak in flavour. Tastes quite flat and cereal like, similar to a lot of alcohol free beers, Moderate lacing. Very dull, quite boring.

Simple, "boring," excellent little session beer. Sparkling gold with sturdy white head. Bready nose with hints of lemon. Lightly bitter, zesty, dry flavor. Deserves big glasses and small talk.
