Very nice refreshing summer beer. Has quite a load of all sorts of citrus flavor, with their trademark Amerillo hops, which are getting a little annoying because they’re in so many of their beers and many times for the wrong reasons. But in this case it’s used right. Doesn’t overpower and gives the floral / fruite flavors some bitter richness. Nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours cloudy brown/amber with a massive frothy white head. Aromas of light citrus hops. Taste of subtle caramel malt, light citrus, floral hops. Well balanced with a bitter finish. Moderate carbonation. Nothing outrageously experimental, instead a reassuringly easy drinking brew, would make a great session beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours out a fairly disgusting colour that looks like muddy sewage water with a huge off white head that coats the glass thick. The aroma is more subtle and mellow than expected with light citrus and floral hop aromas and light bready malt and caramel. The first sip is lightly fruity with a few citrus notes. The finish is mildly bitter with a fresh, fruity flavour and no dryness. A refreshingly easy to drink brew. This is an oddball.

Aroma: Amarillo hops providing their Typical tropical, and citrus aroma, some grains, pine and malts in the back.
Taste: Moderate sweet with a good hop bitterness, taste is Tropical Citrus fruityness. (C?learly Amarillo) some sweet malts. Dry finish.
Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation.
Bitter ? I would say it’s more an IPA with the dominant hops.

0,33 flaske (02/04/14) fra Matkroken Stokka, Stavanger: tårnhøjt cremeskum og et oransjegyldent øl inntar glasset. Nesen pirres av en nydelig aroma fra Amarillohumlen, dette er tropical fruits galore. Lett i kroppen og god smak av mango, lime og andre sydfrukter. Frisk og samtidig avrundet ettersmak. Mye godt i bare 4,5%. Ingredienser iflg etieketten er pale malt og karamellmalt, Sladek bitterhumle og altså Amarillo til tørrhumling. Synes at den smaker mer som en ipa enn en bitter.
