3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle from K-Citymarket Sello
BBE 07/12/13 - Pours lovely golden yellow with a foamy head. Aroma has a lot of grassy and fruity hops, some malts and spices. Taste is has a lot of hoppy notes, but little malts to back them up. Some soapy and lemony hints as well. Finish is light and musty with some fruity and bitter notes. A bit unbalanced, but still quite impressive considering the low ABV.

Bona textura i amargor amb menys de 2 graus. Llàstima que la falta d’alcohol li dóna un final aigualit i sense cos en boca.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Bishops Arms Copenhagen. Just what I needed on a hot summer afternoon. The bar tender insisted I taste it first as she didn't think I'd like it, but she was wrong. The taster seemed a little sour but that quickly disappeared. Fruity aroma with a grapefruit flavour and a hint of bitterness. Very refreshing and I'm looking forward to the next one!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line :
Piney hops and their citrusy tips dominate this obviously lean brew, building a highly convincing reason to drink even more...
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A rocky head of foam settles atop the cloudy honeyed gold.
-The flavor profile and aroma are simple, but so effective.
-The coniferous bitterness is leveled with that of the brew’s moderately high level of intensity.
-The effervescence could be toned down a bit for my tastes.
-The board said it was 0.8% abv, but it tasted more like the 2% range, which is how it’s listed here.
On tap at Ale&Hop, in Barcelona.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a golden orange color with a white head. Aroma is of amarillo with the sweet citrus fruits, orange some tangerine, grapefruit and elderflower. The flavor follows the nose with tangerine, orange, grapefruit and wheat. The body is light with a dry and watery mouth feel. Overall a refreshing and tasty summer beer, but waaay too expensive being on such a low ABV.
