2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500mL bottle shared with demise.
Pours very pale golden, almost water. White head.
Interesting aroma - quite sweet perhaps sugary but not in a bad way. The hops that show are quite fruity.
The flavour was quite fruity, a candy sweetness balanced with a mild unique hoppy bitterness.
This one was 2 dimensional, but very balanced.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, thx to tarjei. A pale, yellowish golden beer with a small, white head. Fruity on the nose, with some tropical fruits and fine. Not many malty footprints. Quite subtle flavor with fruityness. and some maltyness in the background. Some bitterness to finish it. Dryish and quite thin mouthfeel. A quite pleasant beer, but more than a bottle would be boring. (090116)

500 ml bottle. Abv is 4.2%. Golden crystal clear. Medium-sized fine-laced white head that clings to the glass. Hoppy aroma with notes of apricot and citrus. Sweet maltiness. Citrusy hop flavours, almost like lime. Light-bodied. Refreshing malt flavours balanced by a crisp hop flavour. Distinct hop bitterness that stays firmly in the background. Overall a light and refreshing beer that is very drinkable.
