On draught at Papa go. Pours a hazy amber with no real head. Aroma is light caramel, citrus hops and some mild fruit. Taste is mildly sweet with a balanced hoppiness. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Flavorful and session able.

Draft The Rover Göteborg. Väldigtt komplex lite svårt att definiera alla smaker. Mycket humle men jag saknar lite mer beska.

0,33 bottle at cardinal tasting. Pours golden with white head. Nose is very fruity with some hoppy notes. Taste is getting some passion and hops with some malt and a fruity sweetness. A bit watery and expected more bitterness in the finish.

Fin doft, men smaken är verkligen inte mycket att hänga i julgranen. Alldeles för söt.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle, ABV is 5.0%. A very limited number of bottles will soon be available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Cloudy deep golden to orange colour, moderate white head. Lovely and intense aroma of mango and passion fruit, also some piney hops. The flavour is drier than expected, but also distinctly fruity - mango and passion fruit again, quite natural as they are actual ingredients in this beer. Probably also some hops with "tropical fruits" aromas and flavours, but the bitterness is very moderate. The mouthfeel is thin, and the finish a bit "empty". I love hops that impart a "mango and passion fruit" aroma and flavour to the beer, but this is one one of the few beers where these fruits have been added to the brew. A nice experiment, but I’d like some more sweetness and a more bitter finish here.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy brownish orange with a fluffy white head. Sweet candy, fruit, and sugar aroma. Silky full bodied palate. The passion fruit and mango come through up front and linger on the back end with malty toffee flavors in the middle. Finishes fairly clean and light, which is a nice counter point to the fullness of the body. It’s an understated but graceful beer. Well done.
