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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2012
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.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2012
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.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2012
(Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, 5 July 2012. 1.9%) Golden amber colour, slightly hazy, with frothy off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with apricots, grainy malt and fresh citrussy hops. Fruity, malty taste with notes of bread, apricots, grainy malt and fresh citric hops in the finish. Light body, not to say thin, quite dry. Lots of taste for such a low alcohol beer. Very refreshing and extremely drinkable. Nice one.
