Draught at Bungalow. Very pale gold and cloudy. Zesty wheat aroma, some spice. Lots of orange peel, with wheat and very mild corriander. Quite smooth.

Hazy yellow with lots of tiny white sediment in suspension. holds a big white ring head. Smells good and goes down easy. Finishes with a nice citrus character.

Strong wheat aroma with citric notes. White head with big bubbles . Hazy amber color. Taste sweat with wheat and yeast. There are citrus notes to it. Long finish and Carmel aftertaste . Smooth to drink and very we’ll rounded body.

Holmen1 (2018) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2014
Flaske fra polets nettbutikk: meget beskjedent skum men ok uklar lys gylden farge. Beskjeden også i aroma - litt appelsin og koriander. Lett i smaken (som egentlig er grei nok, men også her beskjeden). Flasken ble fort tom, så der var ingenting i veien med dette, men bare så alt for tilbakeholden.

I had high expectations but after tasting found the flavor profile with coriander to be a little ambitious. I can appreciate it from a craft point of view it maybe a technical win, perhaps if it where featured in a tasting menu and it may have better results, but as a beer alone not for my taste. I would try it again.
