500 ml bottle. Cloudy golden colour. Small off-white head. Refreshing funky aroma with notes of citrus and grass. Fairly low carbonation level, but there is enough bittering hops to maintain the beers liveliness. Nice fruity and lemony malt flavours. Wheaty. Overall a really nice summer ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A white, creamy and fully lasting white head rests upon a slightly hazy golden body. The aroma is very strong, heavy hoppy and very pleasant. It has a typical APA/IPA aroma with sweet tropical fruits, mostly peach and mango. There is also some ripe strawberries in the mix. The taste is light sweet with a finish that is far less bitter than the hoppy aroma led me to expect. The flavours are less intense than the aromas, and not as mouthwatering tropical. There are also hints of Belgian yeast, and for such a light coloured beer I also get some unexpected notes of caramel. The body is not too light, it has a fairly dry texture and the carbonation is moderate. A winner!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a slightly hazy light orange body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is apricot, sweet peaches, rosewater, water melon and hints and pale malts. Taste is sweet peach/apricot-like tones, resinous hops, pine, citric peel and hints of grapefruit. Long lingering bitter aftertaste with a semi-dry finish. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Refereshing and simple, this is yet another golden-ale-meets-APA-creation from Haand this summer. I like this one better than Humlesus, although they are rather similar in many ways.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (50cl) from Meny (Bjølsen), Oslo. Inch-thick white head, quite good retention, leaves a ring of lacing. Hazy, greyish-orange colour. Floral-vegetal aroma with citrus, hay, yeast. Light body, average/fizzy carbonation (resulting in a nicely ’filling’ and refreshing mouthfeel). Fairly dry taste with mild citrus acidity and modest bitterness with some juicy sweetness in the background. Nice summer beer.
