2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with Veitafan. The colour is golden amber with an off-white whipped eggwhite-like medium head. Pretty carbonated. Aroma of hay, wheat, lime, green tea and root vegetables. Lots of the same in the flavour with more lime and fruit, and is still pretty malty. Feels light and fresh though. Slick mouth feel, and has a light bitterness. A fresh and rich beer at the same time. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden amber body, darker than I expected, with a decent froth of a head. Taught citric lines to the nose with a fairly basic malty base - thought this would be popping with a fruit juice scent. Initially the carbonation skites the lemon/lime past, solid enough malty platform but a really unimaginative landscape to build the flavour into. Not light on the palate and the citrus kicks in a more glacier sweet way than a hop-substitute. Very sweet caramel when settles. Properly disappointed in this :(

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Almost completely clear golden body with a large head that consist of many small bubbles that collapses into some interesting rocky structures after quite some time, leaving lots of foam on the glass. The moderate aroma is unusually crisp, the added lemon and lime are very obvious. There is also a light touch of sweet malt and sweet fruit that ensures that this doesn’t just smell like a lemonade. In addition I get a light touch of pleasant yeast. The taste is light sweet, light to moderate acidic and light bitter. The moderate flavours are dominated by citrus and lemon balm-like notes of herbs, but still there is a delicate malty backbone. Light to medium body, dry texture, moderate carbonation. Extremely crisp and refreshing mouthfeel, this is probably a perfect thirst quencher for this year’s eight days of Norwegian summer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear yellow with a thick white good lacing bubbly head. Aroma is grain, grass, hay, light lime, fruity, light corn. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Light+ body, oily/watery texture, soft carbonation. Crisp light bitter and dry finish. Drinkable, but easy to forget.

Surprised that this beer was actual good - close to an IPA, but freshness of a Corona

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber with a decent long lasting head. Aroma is citrusy, not much else. Taste is malty, with a bit of lime peel. Finishes a little rough as the bitterness has an unpleasant edge to it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Toft Vin, shared september 15th 2012. Hazy dark orange body, creamy white head. Aroma of lime, malt, hops. Taste is dominated by lime and sugar. Dry lager taste, high bitterness a bit off. Apart from the lime, which I’m not sure if i like, it’s a bit boring.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Bronze beer with a vibrant hue, and a very strong foamy white head. The aroma is gently hopped with some sweetness, and the flavour is hopped and bitter more so with a light malty and vinous quality. Overall a very nice beer with plenty of flavour which is not over done.
