Bottle @ home thanks to Countbeer. Clear golden color, full sized white head. Aroma is pretty fruity and sweetish. Wasn’t expecting that. Taste however is decently bitter, a bit fruity, light to moderately malty. Average body and carbonation.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Flaske på Holmens aktivitetsdag mars-14: lys til bitter å være, og aromaen er tilbaketrukket for å si det pent. Litt sur bitterhet, og ikke mye som minner om en engelsk bitter i denne, mer som en ikke helt vellykket pils.

Pale straw coloured, slightly unclear. White head. Slightly sour aroma and taste. Not much taste of malt. More like a lager than a bitter.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
500ml bottle at home. Fruity, hoppy nose with disappointingly tame, grassy flavours and vague glimpses of something resembling hops. Very poor.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled. Weak aroma of flowers. First sip is plasticy and unpleasant. Taste is flowery but with chemical overtones that don’t balance with it and make it dishwatery. Very lively palate, effervesces too easily. Overstayed its welcome a little at the end.
