3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2013 330 ml bottle, from the brewery (which probably is only a client brewer)*, they are otherwise a distillery (Arvesølvet Aquavit). ABV is 4.5%. Hazy deep golden colour, moderate to low white head. Nice aroma of spicy and citrussy hops, probably American. Light bodied, plenty of carbonation in the mouth. Fresh and citrussy flavour, a decent bitterness in the finish. A pleasant refreshment, no more, no less. *It has now been confirmed that the actual contract brewer is Dugges, Sweden.
