Sample tray taster, 4.7 % abv, tap at the brewpub. Cloudy golden body. Moderate white head that laced nicely. Smell of mild grapefruits. Blended flavour of citrus and malty sweetness. Citrus peels on the finish. Slightly floury, otherwise fine bodied and pleasing to drink (Oslo 13.02.2014).

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Crowbar. Smells really nice this! It has a light cloudy orange-ish look with a small almost filmy but lacing justice off-white head. Loaded with peachy sweetness and some wood juices. It’s get hints of flowers and citrus as well. I like the aroma, and I like the taste. It has a good amount of bubbles this! Almost lively creamy in the mouth with a soft oily mouthfeel. Really grassy bitter but it has a sweetness that balances it out quite elegant. Grass, papaya, minerals and hoppy fruity peaches in the taste. Super drinkable. I doubt I would cry in I had to drink this a whole evening. Well, of course there’s is a disclaimer in that one, but a really good and tasty pale ale! 16.10.2013

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl on tap at Grünerløkka brygghus. Clear golden to amber with a white head. Mild hoppy and fruity aroma with malt, tropical fruits and hints of caramel and citrus. Medium sweet with mild hoppy and fruity flavours and a fairly mild bitterness. Light to medium body with average carbonation. An easy-to-drink ale, quite session able, but not so exciting (despite the fact that they used two of my favourite hops; Amarillo and Citra) More hops, please!
