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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Smells quite fruity and clean. Very fizzy so a decent size head. Looks like cole. Also tastes a bit like coke. Basically alcoholic panda cola.

Pours honey brown to red, with a thin but lasting cream colored crown. Taste is soft and sweet going to citric that last in the tongue and palate. Kind of watery, but good overall.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. The colour is clear dark amber colour with a medium, light beige head. Fruity aroma with peaches, dark berries, rye bread, some caramel, and fruity hops. The flavour has more malt with wet cardboard, grapefruit, citrus, and is metallic in the end. Has a slick and rick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. Nice aroma but the flavour disappoints a bit.
