4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours hazy pale amber with a big creamy off-white head lasting until the last drop, and leaving a lot of lacing. Fruity hoppy aroma with oranges, some ripe fruits like peaches, grapes, muscatel, and a bit tropical; somewhat herbal too; light malt, some cookies and toffee. The taste is light sweet to dry and moderately bitter. Smooth creamy palate, with a long fruity aftertaste. Really nice and drinkable.

50 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a huge slight off-white head. Mainly caramel sweet malt aroma with a slight orange fruity note beneath. Flavour is a bit opposite to the aroma, here the orange/grapefruit notes are by far more dominant than the malt base. Citric and slight acidic flavour, going into a rather dry bitter finish. Only a vague malt sweetness can be tasted.

Shared a 50cl from Danish Deli (Luxembourg). Pours a hazy orangish golden colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is citrus, fruity and grassy. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is well balanced more bitter than sweet and dry finish. Overall, a very good beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lively co2 propelled with a deep golden orenge colour showing a large frothy white head. Aromas of orange zest, citrus, light grass predominate supported by faint barnyard and leave aromas. At first the palate is hit by a lively fizz which fades quickly into a watery slickness. Offers a medium body with medium sweet, light dry, bitter flavours. The finish is coherent and medium long.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flott utseende, gylden med medium høyt skum. Aroma av humle og malt, samt mildt fruktig. Den smaker hovedsakelig av humle og malt, muligens noe sitron og andre frukter. Syns jeg kjenner noe pepper i ettersmaken, sammen med en behagelig bitterhet fra humla. Medium konsistens.

At least in the suitable situation this was really fine and enjoyable pale ale. Well balanced and a bit unique I think.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2014 Bottle@Copenhagen. Slightly cloudy amber color, white head. Hoppy flavor with some citric notes, fairly dry finish. Medium-full body, medium-low carbonation. A bit too dry, but not bad
Edit: re-rated 8/2014. Seems much sweeter than previously. The balance is better.
