3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!

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.

330 ml bottle. Clear golden colour, thin white head. Aroma of citrus and pine, with notes of sweet tropical fruits. The flavour is malty, with a slight sweet note, and a nice finish of grapefruity and piney hops. Good stuff.

Bottle. Aromatic, flowery hops in the nose, with a bit of grapefruit. Rather bitter hoppy taste, though balanced with a moderate amount of somewhat-fruity malt. A nice IPA.

pours golden orange with a white head that don’t stick around too long. Nose is floral with citrus, quite full on. taste is similar with a good dosage of hoppyness. Really good to see a beer that could be sold in the supermarkets in norway with this sort of taste. A good go to pale ale for American taste buds in norway.
