3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Amber colour with lasting, off-white head. Malty, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, grainy malt, resin and lots of fresh, green, slightly herbal hops. Malty, hoppy taste with bread, grainy malt, citrus and generous amounts of fresh grassy hops in a dry, bitter finish. Medium body, dry as a desert. Quite drinkable considering the impressive amount of hops. Very nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy light beige color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry Noble hops with nice floral touch is very interesting. Taste is also a nice mix between some Noble hops with some good mix between dry notes and floral undertones with lightly sweet malt base with clean cereal notes. Body is quiet full for style with good carbonation. I guess this is overly hops for style but so enjoyable that I don’t really care.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A intensely dry-hopped blonde beer. If you love hops juice.
How: Bottle 500ml, consumed relatively fresh with more than 2 years before expiration date
The look: Partly cloudy blonde body topped by a medium white head with a medium retention leaving lots of lacings on the glass
In long: Nose emanates a generous amount of juicy hops essence with a grapefruity character. They call this beer Dryhop and it sure delivers in this department. Taste starts with nice bready malts with pastry sweetness, then the hops essence take over, and a lot of it, leading to a finish with juicy citrus fruits and tropical fruits. Bitterness level is medium. There’s also a surprising amount of sweet dough showing up in the finish. This is currently listed here as a premium lager but honestly with all that dry hop I don’t think I could have guessed if this was indeed a lager or a Blonde Ale. Although very tasty, I find overly dry-hopped beers less sessionable than regular super hoppy beers, all that sticky oily hops essence just doesn’t dry out the beer like regular hopping does. Still this was a pint I enjoyed because I LOVE beer, and if you ever try to convince me to cut down on my drinking you will feel is as powerless as a hamburger helper facing a hamburger that doesn’t want to be helped.
