Bottled. Hazy amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is sweet malts, some alcohol and fruity hops. Flavour is quite much exactly the same. Good balance, but not very exciting. Hides the ABV very well.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33 cl. A deep amberish orange colour with a white head. The nose is fresh and full of hops. The taste is likeways full of hops (- cascade?), and fruity notes. I m missing some volume in the body as in some other american pale ales, but it has a nice and firm finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very pleasant surprise - this beer reminds me of north bridge extreme from nørrebro bryghus, but in a toned down and more drinkable (but much less kapoww) version. I like it a lot because it is balanced and it certainly hides the 7% very well. Very tasty, very easy to drink. I’m going to get more of this while it’s on offer at the local supermarket.

Brown/red/orange colour with a beige coloured head. Malty sweetness, light spicy taste with some bitternes. Not heavy/full enough in taste for an ale. Drinkable and ok but to sweet

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
660ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Danish Days 2008)
Quite dark reddy brown, small light tight persistent head. Initially hoppy fruity aroma, but as it warms it fills out with huge waves of malt. Very soft carbonation. Sweet and very malty taste. And I mean *very*. So smooth - no hint of 7%.
