4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The best lager Iíve had? Quite possibly. Lovely American hops packed into this bottle, rendering the lager really inviting with aromas of citrus and pith. Tons and tons and tons of bitterness and fresh hops. Absolutely ace and refreshing.

Pours amber/honey with a slight tanned head. Resinous hops on the nose, fruitiness, pine. Refreshing hops, with a backdrop of sweet malts. Foamy mouth feel, a bit sticky. Good.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Appearance: muddy brown, like a chocolate milk spiked with cola, frothy, bubbly light tan head and generous lacing. Aroma: wet cardboard, light grassy and hay notes, a bit of granite, and some toasty brown bread. Taste: toasty bread, slightly crackery, with a bit of lemongrass, pipe tobacco, and earth. Finish: abrupt and lightly toasty, with a watery minerality. Notes: Terrible. Iím convinced this must have been a bad/old bottle, because my experience was far outside those of other raters and descriptions, as well as prior exposure to the excellence of this brewer. Watery, with flavors and appearance nowhere near the traditional pils, and certainly not seeming like a premium lager (or premium anything).

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A yellow orange opaque beer with a medium white head. Many thin bubbles. Medium persistence. Good lacing. Intense (like Wow!!) exotic fruity aroma, grapefruit, melon and many other fruits I cannot name, resin, "spices". Dry heavy bitter taste. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, lasting dry bitter finish. Overall, a great hoppy beer, and fruity as hell or heaven, I guess !

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tall off white head. Clear beer-golden body. Aroma with hops, grapefruit peel, lemony hops, lemony malts, very fresh and inviting to the nose.
Taste is lots of lemony hops, mild wort, mild malts, dominating citric herbal stuff, not too bitter.
Fresh normal nice on palate. Finishes nasty, bread, bitter, the good brew.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The Rolls Royce of lager - as far removed from the commercial mass produced Euro lager of my youth as can be - Iíve always hated lager as an adult but this is pleasurable - a classy hoppy delight.

Cloudish golden color with minimal white head. Thin body, a bit watery. Aroma is hoppy, fruity. Bitter aftertaste. Good one.

@Basunen: ganska trevlig doft av tydlig humle och hint av ananas. Smaken är ok. Fin humlebalans, ok beska men lite tråkig smak.

330ml bottle, pours clear light golden brown with small white head and a nice amount of fizz. Hoppy aroma with lots of citrus bite, lemon and grapefruit. Finish is crisp and dry, itís definitely a lager finish albeit a tasty and hoppy lager. Nothing too complex but a decent lager certainly.
