2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml can, provided by Gaute. Clear golden, firm, white head, spotty lacing. Mild aromas of caramel, hay and grass. Similar taste character of mild fruity hops and mid-sweet, caramel malts. A touch of short-lived, harsh bitterness to the ending. Rounded and soft in the mouth. Rather simple but refreshing and drinkable (shared at a tasting session I Tromsø 03.06.2013).

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml can. Purchased by Rune in Kilpis and brought to our Rating Session 03.06.13. Thanks! Orange body, small head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of fresh herbs, grass, dust and some citrus. Dry palate. Tastes of paper, dust, cardboard, dust and some citrus. I’m not doing cartwheels: it’s too dry and boring for my taste, but okay.

Can 50 cl. Pours copper orange clear with a small fluffy head. Nice citrus in the taste with some metallic notes too. Possibly too cold. Should let it air some first. This one not too complex but refreshing.
