3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ausgeglichener, ausgesprochen grasig-blumiger Hopfenantrunk. Das Bier wird schnell bitterer und sehr trocken, bietet aber zumindest vorher ausreichend Aromenpuffer, auf den während der Trockenperiode zurückgegriffen werden kann. So schwinden die Aromen nur langsam, der Hopfen erlebt im Abgang aber ein Revival und ist im Nachgeschmack noch länger vorhanden. Angenehm würzig, insgesamt stimmig. 10/11/11/12/12/11

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 Re-rate on August 29th 2014 based on a 50 cl bottle from Heinemann Gardermoen. Batch #785 tapped on July 24th 2014 and BBD January 24th 2016. Same impressions as initial rating but aroma is even more fresh and impressive. Seems like there are additional aromas of peach and tropical fruits in there.
Initial rating on May 13th 2011: (50 cl bottle from Bunker Beer) Pours a hazy dark amber with medium, off-white head. Aroma a very likable and harmonic floral hoppiness with notes of passion fruit, lemon and a slight note of grass. Oily - almost creamy on the palate from the initial foam lending a more bitter grassiness to the aroma, which is nevertheless still very pleasant and easily drinkable. Full-bodied, average carbonation with a long, bitter finish. Taste is bitter well balanced by fruity and floral notes. A great beer - made me want to try the original recipe by De Molen.
