3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(50 cl bottle from Toft Vin) Pours a golden with medium white head. Decent lace. Aroma is malty with a hint of banana in there. Oily texture, medium carbonation, medium body and an astringent, bitter finish. Taste is grainy, moderately sweet with a certain acidity. Filling. Girlfriend says: "It’s very light. There’s a slightly metallic taste to it. It’s easy to drink."

29.01.2012. 0,5l Bottle. vinmonopolet.no. Hazy and unclear pale brown colour with white head. Lively carbonated for ae English pale ale. Aroma is malty with spruce hops. Medium tpo thin body gives a mouthfeel that is a little thin. Nice flavours of malt and bitter spicy spruce. Bitter aftertaste with notes of fresh green spruce shoots. Gets better the moore you drink and I think this is a very good ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from systembolaget. Pours cloudy, orange/brown, with small offwhite head. Big hoppy aroma of citrus, pine and grass. A steady body for a pale ale, citric pile bitterness, medium fruityness and newly cut grass. Farely bitter, fresh and rather dry. A fullbodied pale all, close to an IPA. Well balanced and well hopped. A really positive surprice from a brewery that have disappointed me most times so far.

050511: Good light pale ale with a slightly sweet taste. a lively beer with a fine dishwater like foam. The brewery writes that it is English in style, but there is used American Amarillo hops?. Too much carbonation. Burp.
