COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg, regular
Session IPA.
A beer lacking in alcohol can’t be really flavourful as well can it? Common sense says it won’t have a big aroma full of passion fruit and mango; it wouldn’t have a well rounded mouth feel and crisp bitterness and there’s no way it’d have satisfying IPA style depth of flavour…. is there? Think again, this is a beer totally devoid of common sense, the jester in the pack, a complete Simpleton…”

Ungstrup (34226) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2016
Draft. An unclear golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, straw, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, caramel, and malt. The body is light.

MrHangover (3896) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2016
Draft @ Brouwcafeé de Molen. Pours a clear deep orange beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is light citric and grassy, refreshing and light. Flavor is full on bitterness with loads of citrus fruits, grapefruits and sorts. Flavor doesn’t last long though. Soft carbonation. Very decent, despite low abv.

mzaar (2751) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2016
Fat @ Ölrepubliken. Klar orange med ett smutsvitt skum. Dofter och smaker av citrus, blomster och tall. Stickig beska. Något tunn, men så såg jag att det endast är 2,8% alkohol. Och sett till det får man ge beröm för hur fyllig den är.

MrTipple (3552) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2016
Aroma: grain and cereal malts, light bread, light floral hops. Appearance: clear gold, small, creamy white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, floral hops, grain malts, dry and bitter finish. Overall: decent Session IPA, yet doesn’t stand out laste-wise, quite impressive though given the low ABV. Pint at Draft House Seething, London Bridge.

Lowenbrau (3180) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 27, 2016
Keg @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 27-04-2016.
In short: fruity low alcohol bitter ale.
Pours quite clear golden with nice frothy white head, Moderate head retention, some lacing. Mango, peachy nose, very noticeable. Medium to light body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is moderate bitter, dry, fruity. Nice flavours for the low abv(3º in this case). Good brew.

Rune (11050) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2016
Beerfest at Furnace Inn, cask, half-pint shared with Finn. Naked surface, poor lacing. Close to clear dark golden body. Malt-fruity aromas, citrus peel and brown malts. Taste of apricot, orange and mango on a mild backbone of caramel sweetness. Thin bodied, not diluted though. Session drink, indeed. (Derby 21.02.2016).

Fra fat på Furnace i Derby 21 Feb 16. Delt med Rune. Amber. Skum langs glasset. Fruktsaftaktig. Bra ferskenaroma. Smaken tørket frukt. Veldig tørr & uvariert.

oh6gdx (25174) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 27, 2016
Draught@CBC2015. Amber colour with a small fluffy white head. Aroma is fruity and floral hops, mild herbs, spices, sweet malts as well as some toffee. Flavour is quite similar, but has a quite big bitter touch to it. Still refreshing and easy to drink. A bit thin as for the palate. Still a nice brew considering the low abv.
