Bottle from a trade with Cunningham, thanx a lot, my friend!
Great bottle design. Pours strong golden yellow with small head. Smells hoppy sweet and very fruity. Starts with very fruity hops, slight bitter, comparable to a british bitter ale. Goes into a fruity sweetish finish with some aroma hops. My wife loved it :-)

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2012
Bottle. Light, English style pale ale. Golde beer. English hops, grass, citrus. Would make a nice summer tipple. Not outstanding, but an honest excample of the style.

abemorsten (2680) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2012
500 ml clear bottle kindly shared by gunnar. Clear deep golden body with a short lived white film. Grassy nose initially gives way to fruity malts. Caramel sweetness and a grassy bitterness. Light to medium body. Watery texture. Tongue ends dry. OK balance.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2012
Medium offwhite head. Clear coppery body with carbonation. Caramelly nutty aroma with perfumy papery notes. Dry-sweet caramelly toffee taste with perfumy fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish caramelly nutty toffee aftertaste with papery notes. Nice, fairly full-flavoured, but a bit artificial-tasting. Tastes much more like a UK pale ale (that is, a bitter) than a US pale ale. (0.5l bottle, Meny Oslo City.)

gunnar (5213) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2012
Bottle from a trade with Cunningham. Clear bottle. Pours clear golden small white head. Aroma is grassy hops, herbs. Taste is clean and fresh, no offtastes here, easy drinkable, honest beer.

OleR (4799) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2012
0.5 L clear (!) bottle, from a trade with Cunningham. Thanks Henrik! Pours a near-clear pale gold, topped by fading blond head. Sweet-scented bready malts to the nose. A whiff of honey, and faint leafy hops. Fairly full for a 4.5% beer. Slick mouthfeel. Taste is on the sweet side of sourish-sweet. Not very ale-ish. Quite neutral malt character. Some sour bread tones, discreet bitterness, and a barely noticable leafy/earthy hop flavor. Light bitter-sweet endnotes. Appears more like a Bitter than an APA. Anyway, a pretty good debut. Drinks ok.

Sigmund (5007) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2012
Shared 500 ml clear bottle, at local tasting. ABV is 4.5%. Golden color, moderate white head. Moderate aroma of English hops, a hint of toffee. Reasonably refreshing dry flavour, tolerable hops in the finish. No masterpiece, but decent enough.

Finn (4134) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
Flaske 0,5l fra Kjeller 5. Småhissig. Lys gyldenbrun. Lavt skum som raskt flater helt ut. Litt uklar. Beskjeden fruktaroma. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken er litt anonym men med tilløp til aprikos. Litt syrlighet etter hvert.

Cunningham (4426) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2012
Golden colour with a small white head. Strange aroma. Not citric, just lemon! A fine malty background. Moderate sweetness. Some citric and light fruity notes. Light bitterness.Typical mild british pale ale. And I think they planned to do that as well. No fancy stuff, but absolutely an ok pa. Today it is listed as an american pale ale. I think our friend KnutAlbert has tricked us.
[Bottle from Roma in Askim, Norway]
