Acid303 (613) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - APR 26, 2012
Orange colour with a small white head. Nothing relevant regarding aroma, but taste is really good: a mix of caramel and hops, I enjoyed drinking this one. Nice body, it would be better with a bit more carbonation.

luttonm (3699) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2012
.33l bottle from ’Only Good Beer’ in Budapest. Slight hazed, honey gold with a couple of soapy bubbles. Oh what a smell coming off of this, fresh, stinky golden hops. Sticky and light funk. Not too fresh but lovely. Smooth sweet bittering, golden raisons, pear, some noble rot. Juicy with a bit of funk. Very tasty, but a little too sweet and coating.

Skakapa (52) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2012
From bottle at tasting arranged by Sällskapet Malte in Feb 2011. Thick frothy head on top of a copper body with slight haze. Citrus en masse, some cooked veggies and a slight hint of peppermint. Sweeter than expected, not very bitter. Something seems to have gone wrong here but somehow I still like it.

12 ounce bottle from the Best Damn Beer Store. Pours a clear orange color with a medium white head. A sweet orange flavor with light apricot. A rich sweet bitterness, some oranges, light oxidation (7 months old, the problem of IPAs from Europe). Rich and easy.
