2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught, as Hantverksbryggeriet IPA, at Gastropub Nordic on 2008-08-08) Amber and clear. Dirty brown stained white big head. Sour and hoppy nose. Medium-bodied dry palate. Sour taste with lightly roasted malts, bitterness and fruitiness. The sourness makes me wonder whether there has happened some error in brewing process.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours muddy pale orange with a medium, creamy egg-whipped white head. Great duration and fine lacing. Aroma is softly fruity hopped. A little caramel and slight fruity tartness. Medium carbonation, fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is very dry, fine flowery and fruity hoppiness. Very light caramel. Super nice, long, dry finish. Perhaps the hops profile is a little too sharp instead of being crisp.

Golden color, big head. Aroma of yeast and the hop cupboard, it smells like a brewery at work. Toffee-styled Golden ale, spiced and robustly hopped, no thrills.
