3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2010 Bottle (cellphone rating). Golden with off white head. Spicy, herbal and flowery aroma. Flavour is sweet and malty with herbes, chervil and a good amount of flowery bitterness. Not a beer I’m overly excited about. A little perfume as well.
Re-rate on draught as Hoppy Easter (previous rating 7-3-7-4-14): Aroma added peach, malt, hops, sweet grain and citrus. Flavour: Peach and citrus.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Hazy yellow color, short head. Aroma of hop, apparently german hops, and they are not that strong indeed. Decent bitter taste. It lacks a bite in it though, lacking personality.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2009 2009-08-21, draught at Ølbaren, 7-4-7-2-13=33
Hazy golden color; creamy head. The aroma shows some candies, light sweetish malt, light yellow fruits. Medium body strength, showing more than its alcohol content would suggest; strong bitterness, well interlaced with the malt, but not much aromatic, maybe oily, and getting a bit oppressive at the end; later, the beer becomes more mellow, showing light fruitness; an IPA, don’t know if German…. On draught it’s a common beer, not as good as the bottle.
2009-06-21, bottle, 7-4-7-5-14=37
Hazy deep blond color; too much carbonation; big head. The aroma has some malt and hop, quite German, but also a very light funkyness. The body is medium-light in the front, with a strong, dry, malt flavor; strong hopping, dry and very grassy; even the flavor presents some Belgian yeast character, that in my opinion is out of place here. With such hopping and with the good toffee malt, the final is very pleasant, full.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Batch 01.01. It is hazy golden with a huge, and enormously firm and lasting head, really impressive. The aroma is very hoppy with the German hops standing out with clear notes of grass and straw, but I also find notes of peach and citrus. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of tangerine and grapefruit, grass, straw and the finish has some dry citrus notes with hints of tobacco.
