3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl, bottle conditioned. batch #907, best before 09/16 so it’s reasonably fresh. Slightly hazy, dark orange golden, a lot of rolling carbonation, thin off-white head. Aroma is very fruity and hoppy, a hint of citrus and pine needles, not much malt aroma. Mouthfeel is dry, flavours are piny and citrusy hops. Again, I don’t find much malt notes to this. It’s a hoppy pale ale, American West Coast style in my opinion.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle@Olso hotelroom in small glass@approx 10 degrees C. Pours cloudy light brown with off white head with sufficeint retention. Fruity aroma, citrus and a little pine dominating the maltiness, which is also there. Very well balanced and complex hop bitter taste - more APA than anything else. More citrus, more spice and the malt also finally manifesting itself as it warms up a little. Texture and mouthfeel a little watery, but not bad for a ABV of only 4,5% - lots of taste and good balance.

From bottle on board Fridtjofen 31.07.15. Cloudy orange. Foamy and persistent off-white head and lacing. Aroma of mango, papaya, other tropical fruits, citrus and pine shoots. Similar taste, balanced with malt and good bitterness of pine and grapefruit. Good!

Pours light amber, loads of foam that becomes thinner quite soon but lingers on quite long. Aroma is really metallic and plastic at first, not really nice.Taste is hoppy, light body, bitter hops. Not too special, works in sauna OK. Becomes nicer once it warms.

Nice copper color with medium head. The finish is slightly sour. American style pale ale that is lacking a little something that I can't put my finger on.
