At a tasting, thanks Slaktmasken, smallish bubbly head, quite clear and deep yellow color, aroma of white fruits, melon, flowers and a hint of citrus, flavor of citrus and pine with a strong citrusy bitterness. Nice and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber color. Nice nose of apricots and tobacco leaf. Decent bitterness that lingers. A bit heavy body for the style, but a step up from most APAs.

Flaske fra Systembolaget Vasagatan Stockholm, delt med Einar: klar gylden med hvitt skum. Fantastisk citrusfrisk aroma med massevis av fersken. Smaken følger opp, og alt dette i bare 4,6%. Middels fylde og ettersmak, men når ettersmaken er så god griper man gjerne etter glasset igen.

330ml bottle - thanks Laiti!
Nasty messy sweet biscuity malt and thin hop aroma. Fuller taste - sweet malts, soft bitter hopping. Some soapiness through the finish. Not particularly pleasant at all, but not a disaster either, apart from the aroma, which was so messy.

330ml bottle @Laiti’s, thanks. Clear golden color. Small size, white head, disappears. Starchy, malty, sweet notes in aroma. Malty, sweet, fruity in taste. Starchy malts and some fruitiness in aftertaste. Thin and watery. Not a horror, but emotionless dull liquid.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden with a tiny head.
Aroma of earthy notes, hints of hops and some resin.
Taste is earthy, grainy and a bit buttery with hints of hops and grass.
Finish is sweetish and stuffy with some off notes. Feels a bit off.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 25.03.2016
Aroma has biscuity malt, some apricot and fruity tones. Flavour is somewhat musty with apricot, menthol, minerals and hints of biscuity malt. Not that American, like a Belgian ale with non-Belgian hops.
