Excellent pale ale with refreshing bitterness.
Hazy golden body topped by a medium sized off white head. Excellent lacing. Fresh grassy hops, light syrup, grain and malt aroma.
Sweet and heavy pine bitterness, but with the smoothness of the drinking experience, and the light to medium body, there is nothing intrusive about it. Bitter, yet well balanced. Some acidity as it warms. Real ale tap @ Den gode Nabo in Trondheim (15.3.2010)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A hazy, light amber to orange body with a large, creamy, white, very long-lived head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass. A bit faint aroma with fruits (mostly citric notes), herbs, yeast and some faint pale lager-like stuff (pale malts?). Light sweet taste with a moderate bitter finish. Faint flavours with citrus and a grassy bitterness. Pleasant on the palate with a medium body, creamy and smooth mouthfeel and medium carbonation, but still a bit disappointing. I expect more exciting beers than this from the Wizard of Florø!
