quite bitter and dry. The champagne yeast has a clearly noticeable effect on the beer and I dont like it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours yellow with a big creamy head. Aroma is very fruity with yeast and hops, some crisp champagne-ish whiffs with minerals, wine grapes and Nelson Sauvin. Body is full with average carbonation. Flavour is bitter with peach and light tropical notes of passion fruit as well as some pepper and a sweet fruity finish. Very fruity, yet crisp. Curious indeed, as well as quite nice.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled 330ml Lumo. Clear golden color, good white head. First some sweetish notes, then hayish aroma. No trace of Cascade or Nelson Sauvin. Light-bodied. Cardboardish front, then sweetish maltyness, light grassy hops. Some white wineous notes (from champagne yeast) but otherwise quite ordinary lager despite of good description.

06.11.2013, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head, but looks like someones pee. Aroma is slightly fresh grassy, light malts, hops, hay, cats piss, pine needles, leafs, hints of citrus. Taste is slightly sweet grainy, light malts, leafs, grain, hints og hops. Little bitterness, very thin mouthfeel. If it had only tasted like the aroma...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33l bottle. A crystal clear kinda pale golden one with a nice medium sized bubbly white top that’s leaving some good blondes down the sides of the glass. It actually has quite a nice little citrus nose. Lots of lemon and lemonade hops mainly, also a bit of grapefruit, tea and wort. Smells alright actually. It has lots of wet grains in the taste. The tropical hops continues also, but it’s way more toned down and subdued than the aroma. Light oily to watery on the mouthfeel and the carbonation level is just below average and it kinda foams in the mouth. I like the citrus sting this beer has. Quite pleasant, but the wet grains and that dry hay flavor draws the total impression a bit down. Grapes and grape stalches in the finish. Absolutely light and drinkable. 16.09.2013

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle picked up at Kjeller 5 in Tromsø. Plenty of bubbly, foamy head, most of it disappearing. Loose glass-lacing. Clear late straw coloured body. Semi-dry aroma of citrus and herbal hops. Mid-sweet flavours of noble hops added by herbs and earthy malts. Gentle dry bitter endnotes. Oily palate, clean on the swallow. Well made lager (Tromsø 26.10.2013).

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 0,33L brown bottle, alc 4,7%, bought at ICA.
Very distinct hops to the nose and grapefruit notes.
Wow head on beer yellow body.
Tastes hops, notes of grapefruit, freshness.
Well balanced and fresh in the mouth.
Ends also with hops, faint malts, notes of rhubarb and grapefruit.
Very tasty actually.
A pity that Tromsø lost 2-0 to 2-3 under Viking during this beer. (At the end of the match Tromsø won, but after season went down anyway)

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Pours a golden straw colour with a small and white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma with tones of citrus, pale malt, hay and passion fruit. Light flavour with more pale malt, grass and saaz hops. A little dry in the end. Light and silky mouth feel, and has a light bitterness. An interesting, bit fruity and fresh premium lager. Decent.

Enjoyable untraditional lager. Not to sweet. Balanced aftertaste. Surprisingly interesting use of hops.
