Bottle from Bierkompass, bought in January 2015.
Clear light amber with a medium head. Light aroma and taste of malt, grapefruit, some hay and caramel. Not that hoppy and with a low bitterness. A bit tired?

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Finally getting around to rating this. Poured into a shaker, deep orange in colour with a bright head that lasts and gives good lacing. Aromas of citrus, bitter hops and a slight maltiness. Taste is bitter-sweet, leaning strongly to the bitter side. Finishes clean and crisp with just enough lingering bitterness. This is a constant in my beer fridge, I could drink this all day long. Really good, emminently sessionable beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Copper amber clear. Caramels, citrus, some peachyness on nose. Med light bodied, bit light on the malts. Hoppy though, bitter with a slight piney finish. Ok drink. Feels like a honest baseline US ipa/pale ale.

Flaska. Härliga toner av fotbira o lagård. Smaken något tunn med en bra balanserad efterbeska. En hyfsad pale ale.

It’s a fine lil’ brew this one is. Nothing about this screams "totally awesome" but it is tasty and sessionable as heck. Fruity citrus hops and strong caramel comprise the scent of this ruddy-honey fella. A nice lacer, too. Taste is bittersweet, leaning more to the bitter side of things but leaving a lingering sweet, fruity flavour behind. Mid-low carbonation and medium body round out this good time.
