3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rather thick, yellowish to cream head over foxy orange beer; some lace. Fruity C-hops, grapes, passion fruit, lytchee, citrus... Bit of ureum/hessian sacks aromas. Bitter, fruity with pure citrus/-marmalade retronasal. Fruity hops utterly dominating the flavour. Very lively carbonation, quite (hopoily) slick, medium bodied; Maybe a tad too slick. It gets a kind of alcoholic fruitdrink character, this way, if on the bitter side; Refreshing, no doubt.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is lovely orange and citrussy hops, touch of grapefruit and lychee. Flavour is a big bold hop bitterness, sharp and fresh, again with loads of citrussy and orange notes. Subtle malt note. Great pale ale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Angenehm hopfiger Beginn mit etwas stärkerer Karbonisierung. Die Herbe steigt, zum Ende wird das Bier bitter. Süffig, erfrischend, wenig aromatisch, besonders der Hopfen könnte intensiver sein. OK. 8/8/8/7/8/8

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy reddish golden colour with huge, firm, frothy minimally off-white head. Slightly grassy hoppy aroma, a touch of grapefruit. Taste has initially a slightly sweet malty note immediately replaced by dry and bitter hop, minimally grassy, has additionally grapefruit and citrus notes. Not sensational, but I would be completely satisfied if it was one of the three things I took with me on a lonesome island.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A copperbrown beer with a beige and medium head. Aroma is great, fresh and tropical fruity, mangos, pineapples, nice sweetness, hint of wet pine forest. Taste is dryer than aroma, some tropical fruits, medium piney bitterness, piney and slightly herbal dry aftertaste. Medium+ bodied, strong body even low alc.%, just like light IPA. Enjoyable, fruitfull nad nice piney bitter. Good beer for easy enjoy.
