Flaske 500ml fra Kjeller 5. Veldig lys gyldengulbrun. Svakt uklar. Høyt kremaktig skum som daler sakte. Svakt metallisk aroma. Smaken har antydning til gress. Litt tynn. Litt syrlighet i ettersmaken. Bra tørsteslukker.

Cask @Wyndham Armas, Salisbury. 08-08-2014.
In short: butiric nose beer.
Strong butiric nose. Pours clear bright gold with little white head. Short head retention, no lacing. Taste is mild, malty, sweet, as well as the aftertaste. I guess some kind of problem occurred with this beer, cause Hop Back at its "home" is supposed to be in proper condition.Weird.

Perfect summer beer, served at the correct temperature is full of flavour but smooth enough on the taste buds. Doesn’t blow your head off like other beers so you can have a fair few and still walk at the end of the session. As a real ale it’s best served around 15 degrees but can be served a bit cooler although this does rob the flavour

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a clear light yellow body with a massive frothy white head. Aroma is wet grains, straw, grass and hints of pale malts and metallic notes. Taste is pale malts, wet grains, dry cereals and hints of straw and grass. Light body, medium carbonation. Fantastically boring stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask @ Glue Pot, Swindon. Straw, almost transparent, with a thin white head. Light aroma of honey and malt with vinous overtones. Surprisingly sweet taste, like a gentler version of Summer Lightning without the astringency. Long sweet nectary finish. Weak mouthfeel. Good beer, but slight and unassertive.
