Hermod (3000) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2012
50cl bottle. BBE 06/2012. Hazy, pale yellow, creamy, lacing, lasting white head. Aroma has mostly citrus, but also grass and floral notes. Flavor is fruity hops, malt, citrus, bitter finish.  Decently hopped. Good golden ale, enjoyable still even as it was an old bottle.  Session beer.

ianwelby (405) - SCOTLAND - JUL 21, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2012 Aroma-wise it’s not bad, just average. A fine-looking pint, blonde and with a thick, foamy head. A sharp, bitter taste while not being overpowering. Would be a good session beer.

Holmen1 (2272) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2012
500ml bottle.4,4% slightly hazy, light golden colour. Fresh bitterness, but could have done with more aroma hops. Great thirst quencher and drinkability.

Beersiveknown (2724) - NORTHERN IRELAND - APR 18, 2012
Similar pale blonde as Jarl with dry citrus aroma. Maltier than Jarl with orangey hops, a sharper finish and gentle carbonation.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle 50 cl. Pours yellow with tiny impurities and a white head. Skewed British hops in the nose. Light body, very fresh hops dominates the flavour - Sorachi Ace?? Nah, I doubt it but it has a very fresh and tropical feel to it. Ends very bitter. 310312
