2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours pale yellow with a thin off white clumpy head. Nose is dust, floral hops, leather, malt. Sour maltiness in the flavor. Thin mouthfeel. Watery. Not much fun, and I really like most Left Hand stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours hazy gold/amber with a small creamy white head. Very interesting sweet fruity and flowery hop aroma with some green apples as well. Taste is moderate sweet and bitter fruity hops, reminds me of the good british ipa, nothing over the top, just good all over.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured into a snifter.
3.5 A: Clear light orange color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is a hair below average, but a small ring of lacing is left.
3.0 S: Hoppiness is grassy with citrus undertones. Light neutral malty sweetness. Perhaps a touch of biscuit. Clean overall.
3.0 T: Just a touch of grassy and citrusy hops. Mild graininess and a touch of straw-like sweetness. Faint caramel flavor. Simple and not very intense, but good enough.
2.5 M: This I don’t really care for. Body is on the heavier end of light. Good moderate carbonation. Lacking any creaminess. Otherwise, smooth.
2.5 D: Not a bad beer, but definitely on the lower end of average. Worth a try just so you know.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Amber body, small white head.
Light and a bit boring aroma, malty, some fruity hops but not by far as much as expected.
Taste is a tad better, balanced between malt and hops, but still a bit tame.
Kind of a sweet finish ends the beer as boring as it starts.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Usually like IPA better, but this had a nice sweet aroma. Appearance was clear golden. Taste sweet at first then finished with a slight bitter on the palate. Overall a great easy drinking pale ale.

Small sample, on tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Deep golden colour, large head. Lovely hoppy and spicy aroma and flavour - an excellent beer, as far as I could tell. Will rerate as soon as I get a bigger sample (had to drive tonight).

Bottle. I think the faceless silhouette on the bottle was appropriate for this beer. It had a small amount of spice flavor and a slight bitterness. Mostly, it was bland.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber gold with a medium sized white head. Soft spicy hops on the nose, a touch of earthy breadiness. Sweeter than expected, but still nice. Thick sweet malt and grain backbone, nice body to it. Medium bodied, gets a touch grainy. Nice earthy hop notes. Gets a nice bitterness on the finish. Easy drinking, fairly sessionable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught@Pikkulintu, rated 2011-09-04) Hazy golden with a small, lacy and lasting head. Orange, peach, citrus, pale malt in the nose. Oranges and peachy-fruity smoothness in the flavor, but unfortunately the finish has a bit rough and acidic bitterness. Quite light body with low CO2. Drinkable, but somewhat lame, low-ABV, fruity APA.

Bottle. Floral hop aroma is moderate. Yellow, clear, light head. Medium carbonation. Rye and bitterness in the taste. A pale with plenty of flavor and character.
