3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Haand Festival 2013. Dark golden body, white head. Floral and fruity hop aroma, light malty. Taste is an explosion of tropical fruits balanced by grain I guess is the rye. Dry and bitter as I like it, with a fresh fruity finish. Good stuff!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a deep a light amber-golden body with a medium creamy off-white head. Sweet floral hops, bready cereal notes, grapefruit, peaches, citric peel and hints of wet grass. Taste is floral fruity apricot, wet grass, subtle sour-ish grainy notes and hints of grapefruit and resin. Medium to light body, slick mouthfeel. Really gorgeous pale ale with loads of drinkability and freshness; the rye plays the background but doesn’t run the show, which works very well for this little beauty. Two thumbs up.
