Aroma and nose: fruit and hops. One of the better beers you can buy in the stores in Norway (<4,76% ABV). Will compare more thorough with Haandbryggeriet Pale Ale later, as they are quite similar and both good.

33cl bottle at Amundsen. Pale yellow colour with a medium big white head. Aroma is hoppy and laden with tropical fruits. Flavour is a bit of a let down. The hops is present as well as some floral and grassy notes, but unfortunately they are soon merged with metallic notes. Aftertaste is short and a weird mixture of hops and metal at first, but the metal vanished after a short while and the hops keeps on lingering.

Trade with Yngwie, thanks my friend. It’s hazy, warm golden with a huge, creamy and white head. The aroma has notes of citrus and other fruits and malt. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of citrus, malt, exotic fruits, and the finish is dry and slightly bitter. It’s refreshing, fruity and charming.

On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger in June 2011.
Hazy golden with a small white head. Quite different I must say, some fruitiness, wood but also notes of smoke. Not that bitter and with a rather short aftertaste.

Another lovely designed label from Lervig, I simply adore these retro looking masterpieces! The beer itself is also very good looking: a clear, golden orange body with a small white head with good lacing. Excellent fruity aroma with grapefruit, peach, apricot and melon. The taste is is not as extraordinary as the aroma, but still very nice: medium bitter, a slight touch of sweetness and also a tiny bit of acidity? Citric flavours with grapefruit, and also some subtle sweet fruity hints in the aftertaste, strawberries perhaps? The body and texture are rather thin, and I’m so close to awarding a lousy 2 for the palate. Medium to lively carbonation. Apart from the thin mouthfeel, I really liked this one!

330ml bottle brought back home from Meny Grønland Torg in Oslo. Near-clear, amber-gold. Small, white head. Great aroma of succulent citrus hops with notes of fresh orange and lemon. Hay and grass in flavour followed by a smooth, hop bitter end. Easy to quaff. Very moreish with session qualities (shared with Finn at Finns in Tromsø, 16.06.2011).
