Clear light gold, strong white head. Very clear Citra nose. Medium body, bit bitter, balanced. Finishes bitter and refreshing. Nice summery beer, though Citra seems a bit overused nowadays.

330 ml bottle. BB 29/02/15. From saveur-biere.com.
Cloudy champagne colour with a tiny white head. Very nice fruity and floral hoppy aroma with mild NZ twist, mild bitterness and some dry maltiness. Yummy! The flavour is floral, piney and citric hops, moderate bitterness and malt. Tasty.

Beer4000 (4712) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2015
On tap @ Kick. Clear golden body with a small, lacing white head. Nice and fruity aroma, peaches, apricot, grapefruit and orange peel. Flavor is light malty, citric fruit and surprisingly good bitterness. Rather thin body, that actually feels right in this case with a good, long lasting fruity bitter aftertaste. Nothing complex, but a very nice session beer I probably could have anytime.
