1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
[Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm] Clear amber, average head. Dusty aroma of citrus and melon. Light ly appley with sharp unpleasantly metallic mouthfeel. No malt flavour, too little hops and a fizzy quick finish. What went wrong here?

Bronze, good head; even aroma and palate, balancing earthy, toffeeish malts and floral hops. Though it seems modelled after English style pales, the use of American hops gives it a vibrancy that really adds to the balance and drinkability of the beer. Not a landmark product but nicedly done.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours amber with a transient foamy off-white head. Light slightly roast caramel aroma. Near med body. Flavor is mostly light roast caramel, but it is astringent. Not all that bitter though. Just a light touch of fruity hop. Course astringent and bitter confuse me a little. Definitely dry finish. Other than the mouth shrinking there’s not a lot to write home about. Drinks well tho.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle... Clear amber ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Good retention. Floral, fruity aroma with a pleasant afterthought of diacetyl. Balanced nicely, but thin. Reserved acidity sparks some interest and then disappears, leaving just a whimper of buttery diacetyl and my palate unfulfilled. Light-bodied with Champagne-like spritz. Short, tannic, bone-dry finish. A big THANKS to growler for splitting the bottle!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a slight gold hue with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of citrus and grapefruit with a backing sweet grain and biscuit. Flavor is a bit more thin and has a lot less hop profile with some sweet grains and a hint of grapefruit coming out in the finish.
