Pours bronze with a medium, quickly diminishing head. Smell ia very gentle, almost subtle-citrus. Taste is full-bodied with more carbonation that adds to the streanght of the taste. Little hoppy, gently sour. A good beer.

0.33l bottle from the local shop. Pours dark golden/bronze, with thick beige head. Aromas of malt, hops, a bit fruity, grassy and a touch of caramel. On the palate there is hops, grapefruit, malt, biscuits, wood sap. A bit bitter and dry finish. Well balanced and refreshing in the summer heat.

Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Slightly lively on opening. Some hops but they are quite subdued at first before developing into a slightly hoppy finish. Expected more hops but still a reasonable and slightly different beer.

Not amazing but not bad either. A slightly hoppy red. Notably not too sweet - missing the stronger biscuit and caramel notes.

Rødbrun i fargen med et off white skum. Maltete aroma med innslag av frukt, sitrus og krydder. Smaken følger aroma, menn faller litt igjenom. Vannete avsluttning og liten eller ingen ettersmak.

330 ml bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.
Translucent dark amber honey colour with no yeast sediments; Half finger head with soapy off-white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Very good sticky lacing and notable slight carbonation; Quite fragrant and sweet aroma of ale malt, with grapefruit, honey, floral, caramel, pine, molasses, yeast, spices and light grass; Close to light sweet taste of ale malt, with potent tart notes, caramel, light grapefruit zest, molasses notes, soda, light pine, dry biscuits, yeast, light earth, light lemon, moderate bitter hops, and strong grass; Mid to light body, dry and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is quite thin amber ale. Fair maltyness in a rather soda-like body. Good caramel notes, not sweet at all. Grapefruit is just thin zest and pine is low-key despite the Yakima hops. Dry and biscuity. Okay... Hoppiness is grapefruit , floral, honey and light pine in nose, Low-fi citrus zest, light earth, light pine and quite sharp grass in taste. Bitterness is moderate for an abrupt, low astringent semi-finish; Dry after taste; Easy and low bitter to mouth.
Comments: This one is quite decent, but also quite inadequate - watery body and feel, plus underwhelming 5-hops in taste. An light amber ale with light touch of hoppiness. Dry and quite crisp, it’s for light comfy drinking and do just that. Nice to try.

Pours red with a tiny head, giving it the appearance of snakebite black. Found this surprisingly bland, pale malt dominates but little standout flavour or complexity.
