Bottle on train from Kristiansand to Sandnes. Pours hazy dark golden with a small creamy off-white head. Aroma is malty with piney hops. Taste is light sweet toffee, with a good dry piney finish, good beer for a train journey.

Orangey colour with thin head. Biscuity, malty aroma and taste. Light hop bitterness. Perhaps some peachy sweetness in the finish.

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.

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.

Flaske fra nærbutikken. Gylden , disig farge. Moderat karbonert med enorm varig skumtopp. Smaket malt,korn,gress, sitrus ,furunål og tropisk frukt. En fornøyelig butikkøl

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.
