Medium strong aroma is deliciously fruity with excotic fruits like mango, apricose, lime. Malting is covered mostly. Bit caramel. Cloudy honey yellow, dense white head about one finger is media long. Good lacing. Soft and creamy texture, mrdium body, soft bild carbonation, bitter sweet and fruity fresh, caramel-bread malting. One of the best lagers I have tasted. Really enjoyed this one in peace.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Beer Hunters. Pours cloudy yellow to orange colour with a small but firm well-lacing creamy white head. Quite fruity and sweet aroma with exotic fruits like passion, mango and grapefruit. Quite bitter taste with strong herbal hops, citrus and bready malt. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and oily to watery mouthfeel. Bitter citrus finish. A bit odd brew but definately tasty. Tastes more like an IPA than a premium lager but definately one of the best premium lagers I´ve drank.

Bottle - 500ml. Hazy blond body with a huge white foamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with malty and herbal hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries coriander, grainy, and citrusy notes. Ends with a long bitter/herbal finish. Very enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Olympen, 2011. Hazy golden color with a large semi white head. Aroma of malts and loads of fruity hops, peach, pineapple and orange. Taste is crisp malty, good dry lager yeast, with a matching fruit hoppiness as above, with a dry and fruity long finish. A prime example of a premium lager

Flaske: Orangegul klar øl med et stort flot skumhoved. Dejlig duft af amarillo med en god del citrus nærmest over i lidt mango. Smagen er også humledomineret men ikke så imponerende grundet den lidt tynde mundfylde. Ellers dejlig øl.

0,5 flakse delt med medbrygger Ovesen: lovende førsteinntrykk, men etter hvert overtok en metallisk ufriskhet. Antydning av røykmalt. Not my cup of tea.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Drukket i heimen 13 Aug 12. Lys gylden. Litt uklar. Veldig høyt kremaktig skum som klamrer seg til glasset. Veldig god aroma av grapefrukt. Smaken er syrlig frukt. Sitron. Blir veldig bitter etter hvert.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l bottle. Just managed to snatch the second last bottle left for sale at Vinmonopolet, so a bit lucky that I get to try this one. It pours a cloudy orange-honey colored body with a massive, quite impressing really dense and lasting off-white head. It smells really fruity and aromatic with peaches, ripe strawberries, ripe melon zest, icy snow, some citrus and a dash of sweetness. Not bad at all! It’s average to lively carbonated and it has a soft oily to watery texture in the mouth. Flavors are not as fruity s the aroma made me believe, but it’s definitely well-hopped! A good dry bitterness with some tones of hedge. Ends quite sharp and a bit watery. Long grapy finish and aftertaste. A bit to strong-hopped and perhaps even on the border of being unbalanced, but there is no doubt that this is a flavorful beer. 18.06.2012

Bomber sample @ Delirium Hoppy Loft // lightly hazy amber with a zhite head // nose is stockfull of american hops, ver round fruity, citrus direction, some citra, cimcoe, I think // taste is simmilar fullblown american hops, citrus, round light touch floral, fruity, dry hoped, miinor touch of yeast // smooth // impossible to believe that this is a lager but than again i think that if you dryhop anything this much, this is sort of the reason why I feel that lager IPA or something should be a style
