3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours out in a shady amber colour with a rich sticky white head. Rather mild fruity aroma of yellow kiwi, gooseberries, peaches and mild red grapefruit. Medium-bodied with notes of grass, yellow fruits, cookies, butter and dough. Medium-bitter finish of grass, mild lemon and oranges on a foundation of doughy malts. Decent APA.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A distinct aroma of butterscotch and some spicy hops. Not so nice! Distinctive flavor of butterscotch, tropical fruit and spicy hops. A strange taste and I really do not like the butterscotch flavor, but fortunately the hops lifts the beer to drinkable. Tastes a little bit better than it smells, but I find the taste too candy-like!

Pours a copper colour with a lacy white head with some lazy bubbles. Aroma of strong floral hops, grapefruit and toffee. Flavour of strong floral hops, citrus, caramel malts and grapefruit. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and a lovely crispy, floral, grapefruity finish. One tasty beer.

Bottle. Copper, nice head. Hoppy nose with malt in the background. Mild taste with caramel notes and a nice creamy finish with some hoppy bitterness as well. Good, but too pricey.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared with Palme at my 1000-rating tasting, 16th of May 2011. :-) Body is hazy deep orange, with a big, creamy white head. Looks absolutely fantastic in my glass. Nose is fruity tones of apricot, sweet peaches and grass, along with hints of pale malts underneath it all. Taste is more fruity tones, apricot and peaches with light tones of maple syrup and hints of grass. Very nice indeed. A sweet, yet utterly drinkable pale ale from Djævlebryggeriet. Too bad they’re not coming to the beer festival in Copenhagen this year, I’m eager to taste more of their products.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating #400: 0.5l bottle shared with ClubGonzo. Pours a really nice deep orange body with some yeasty residues and a big dense lasting off-white head. Aroma is nice and fruity with strong hops, mild malts, strong sweet caramel and some toffee. A nice and full-bodied beer, smooth and almost creamy texture and it’s average carbonated. Really nice flavors, mainly caramel on top of a good malt-base. Light bitter, fruity and really nice aftertaste with peach and orange. Sweet without being to sweet and it’s not fancy schmancy in any way, just a plain good old APA.

A devils brew min sjæl! Brown, hazy, with a frothy head. A hint of apricot and lots of hops. Bitter with appeal, temptingly coarse and honest. A tørstslukker for sure.
