3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle. Bottled on 17.07.2012.
Pours slightly hazy amber color with a huge, lasting frothy head. Aroma has some nice floral hops, citrus fruits, some pine needles, faint caramel and nettles. Rye notes start to appear only after the beer has warmed up a bit.
Flavor of faint malts, citrus fruits, hay, some oily hops and surprisingly some vanilla. Rye seems to be on the background though, some faint notes only. Carbonation is quite strong, the palate isn’t overly bitter, quite smooth actually, a bit fluffy even. Well balanced and very tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pours hazy amber with a creamy longlasting off white head. The aroma is malty caramel, highly bitterness, grapefruit, light plastic and pine. The flavour is very fruity and the US hops kicks in with notes of peach, citrus and grapefruit. Im not a big fan of the Premiant hop in pale ales but its very much in the background in the flavour. It has a grapefruity and piney finish.
