3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from Centra Colosseum in Oslo. 4.2% ABV.Clear, light straw body under a low, bubbly head. Citric fruity to the nose. Smooth taste of grapefruit and juicy fruit. Soft and dry in the mouth with a nice, but short bitter finish. Would make a great session beer. Very refreshing after a long working day in Oslo [at my hotel room, 22.01.2009].

Big very white shiny head. Paleish yellow body. Light, fruity resiny aroma. Delicate dry-sweetish floral fruity resiny taste with mealy spicy hoppy notes. Light body. Smooth, soft mouthfeel. Dryish floral resiny aftertaste. Nice, but perhaps a bit low on taste. (0.5l bottle, Centra, Oslo.)

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV of the bottled version is 4.2%. Extremely pale and crystal clear yellow colour, moderate white head. Very nice hoppy aroma with strong notes of oranges and tropical fruits. The flavour is zesty and well hopped throughout, with a nice grapefruity bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. A typical "summer ale" which I, however, was quite happy to drink on a dreary January night.

Bottled, a little yeasty residue. Big bubbles.
Rich and malty. Apples, oranges, sumer meadows. Crisp dry finish. Another fine take on a boring style from this brewery.
