I wouldn’t kick it out of bed, and especially at 1.9%, Id be willing to go a couple rounds. What it lacks in mouthfeel it compensates with in bitterness and high carbonation, stripping the palate down, but leaving no residual aftertaste.

BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 3, 2012
2012 bottle. Pours with a murky golden yellow hued body with a very large white head. Mostly bigger bubbles, lots of evident carbonation. Good retention. Carbonic nose, plenty of citrus and tropical fruit, citrus zest, grainy, malty, bready, crackery, gooseberries. Medium-low ester. A bit waxy. Flavor are grainy and bready. Definitely a bitter balance to it. Citrusy, rind, tangerine, gooseberry, medium tropical fruit. Dry. Not a huge body, but not thin by any stretch of the imagination. Bitterness is a little tannic in character. Very lively carbonation. Clean carbonation. Very decent.

Frovigalning (2694) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2012
Sample at SBWF. Fresh hoppy smell with tropical fruits. Mild taste with a light malt base. Noticable bitterness and some fruity hops. Nice summer beer, and specially nice considering the low ABV.
