A delicious beer. Hopped with armfuls of American Chinook hops, this beer oozes citrus flavour and aroma. It has a lovely sweetnes balanced with a lingering bitter finish backed up with a late grapefruit hit.

0,33 pullo@ Vihreä Haltiatar. Sameahko kullankeltainen. Haisee oksennukselta. Hyvin tunkkainen hedelmä oksennuksen takaa havaittavissa. Maussa hiukan hedelmää, todella karvasta mäntysuopaa ja selvästi oksennusta.

solidfunk (4489) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Mostly bittering hops in the aroma without much fresh flavor - though that could well be from the voyage over the pond. Hazy light orange pour with ok head and lacing. Soft carbonation. Some grassy notes. Medium bitter finish. Tap at Churchkey.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2014
On tap @ Kælderkoldt. This is a soft blurry almost pale straw golden one. It has a nice big white dense head with great retention. It smells really mild but nice. Soft grassy, a mild caramel sweetness. A little cornish hint also detected. Actually not that bad, perhaps a tad dull. Really lightdrinkable and surprisingly tasty. Not a huge flavor bomb but it’s gentle, elegant and somewhat refined in the taste. Some bitter orange peel with hints of straws and thin caramel. Really lightdrinkable as I might have mentioned before in this rating? 09.08.2014
