Pours amber with white head, aroma is citrusy with a bit of malt. Taste up front is orange and lemon, tangy, and heads into a bit of bready/caramel sweetness that bitters a bit at the end. Not a bad session beer.

Nice light hoppy aroma, begging to be tasted. The taste is smoother than I expected, with much less bitterness than I thought it would have. Real smooth, but overall nothing stands out flavor-wise. Quite drinkable overall.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz twist off capped bottle sent to me by my winter 2009 Secret Santa. Pour is ever so slight haze golden yellow with a one inch white head that falls with big bubbles and some light lacing. Aroma of some faint orange and vanilla sweetness, along with only a whisper of dusty toasty grain. Taste is the dustcy tasted garin malt up front, followed by a sharp sweet orange fruit and bitter orange peel, finishing with a bit of a cardboard dirtiness. Palate is medium to thin bodies, above average carbonation, and a lingering wet cardboard aftertaste. I think there is a decent beer in here somewhere, but its lost in the dusty cardboard - perhaps too much travel or age? Even still, its an easy drinking beer and I had no trouble finishing it. Thanks for sending this one my way Santa.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz can. Pours a bright, clear, apricot-golden color; thin off-white head with light retention and patchy lacing. Light, slightly hoppy aroma showing citrus and mineral bitterness, lemony with a touch of honey; quiet, crisp nose. Medium mouthfeel: relaxed carbonation, good levels of acidity on the edges; lively, citrus and mineral hop character at the forefront, showing some juiciness and solid bitterness; not bad, and reasonably drinkable, but just not enough clarity in the hop presence and a touch too light. Lasting bitterness: minerals and lightly toasted malts.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2010 Bottle from Champanes, has a clear bright, medium gold pour with some effervescence, produced a white one to two finger head that dissipated to a ring, aromas of bread, faint floral and citrus hops, light pear fragrance, hints of toasted malt, little sweetness on the nose, flavors of toasted malt with some bread, grain and light fruit, has a crisp finish with some hop bitterness, mouth feel is a little less than medium with some hop bitterness, an ok Pale Ale, pretty easy to drink, and I think this would taste good with Pizza.

Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Clear deep golden, rich firm head. Peachy hoppy nose. Sweet with some butter, plenty of paper, mango and peach. Very fruity with sweet crystallic malt an marked late bitterness. Too sweet, fruity and clean to be great.
