4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Hazy light amber color. Very nice hoppy aroma, with delicate citrus fruits. Light mouthfeel; dry toffee flavor, crispy, with correct bitterness and delicious citrusy hops, fresh; it also has a touch of manure; the final shows more citrus peel.
A perfect British modern Golden Ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thx to tarjei. It pours a sparkling golden body, slightly hazy, and with a finger-thick, creamy, off-white head on top. Nice lacings. The aroma has a good dash of peaches, along with citrus and pine cones. The malts are quite subdued. Flavorwise it’s on the bitter, hoppy side, with peaches, lemon notes and hints of pine cones. A sweetness from the pale malts blends in and gives body. Smooth on the palate, and it slides down dangerously easily. A bit metallic in the end, but mostly bitter and fruity. Overall, a really nice one, both tasteful and easy drinking. Definitely a beer that should be available all over the country. 101231

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from GBBF 2012. One of the great things about GBBF is that you get to drink beers that you wouldn’t normally. Come armed with £100 and buy as many bottles of foreign muck as possible. Clear amber with thick cream head. Leafy piney hoppy aroma. Grapefruit on aroma too. Oooh now there is something in the flavour that isn’t quite right. Piney bitter hops yes. It’s not quite puke, but it’s something cereally and not quite right. sago or tapioca that kind of thing you had boiled as a child at school that makes me shake in my boots. Hops are good, body and malts leave something to be desired.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 4.7%. Sweet flowery aroma, elderflower, it seems. Almost clear golden colour. No head, at the least very unstable. The flavour is not as flowery as the aroma. More like rough.

Hazy amber, not much head. At Brasserie Posten, Geiranger.
Light and mellow for APA, the hops are a bit disjointed, but the balance is straight SNPA.
