2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Flott ugjennomsiktig gylden farge med en fin hvit topp som lager godt med gardiner nedover glasset. Real syrlig aroma, så syrlig at det er vanskelig å i gjenkjenne annen aroma. Grei medium kropp. Moderat søt og ok bitterhet. Noe myk karbonering. Merker en anelse citrus og litt fruktighet i smaken. Ville nok vært ok når den er fersk. Prøver igjen ved neste anledning. Andre som leser dette bør ikke ta stor notis av denne ratingen. Unntatt at det kan være greit å få en smaksprøve først om en er der utenom sommersesongen.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2013 On tap @ the brewpub. Hazy golden body with a nice off-white head. Quite pleasant, not very strong citric fruity aroma with spicy yeast. Flavor is light, soft malt, fruity, mild but refreshing bitterness. No strong flavors here, but has a nice balance and very quaffable. Medium body and the same light but pleasant aftertaste. Nothing extraordinary but I could easily have a few more of this. The best of the three beers from here that I have sampled so far.
By the way, had another one recently that was almost a disaster. Muddy yeasty with acidity. Drinkable, but not anything close the previous version that is ratet.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. A lovely, dense, creamy, off-white head sits on top of a glowing, unclear orange body. Lightly citrusy nose with some pine cones and a generic fruityness. Some malty notes too. A bit thin on the palate, with soft carbonation, quite dry. Pleasant bitterness, but a bit more wouldn’t hurt. Peach hints, pine cones and some orange peel. Lasting finish. A tad boring at first, but it turns out to be a nice thirst quencher. 130324
