50 cl bottle from Meny Kolsås. Pours golden with a large creamy off white head. Fresh hoppy aroma, with citrus and grassy notes. Fresh teaste with notes of hop, citrus and grass. Light bitterness, medium body and medium carbonation. A good golden ale.

Snegurochka (389) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2014
500ml bottle from Eurospar Tomasjordnes. For once I decided to try a brew under the right conditions. I have the rare opportunity to sample "Sunshine" on an exceptionally warm evening in Tromsø. Pours a hazy orange body under a huge foamy head that diminishes and leaves beautiful lace work on the glass. Flowers, fresh hops and some citrus to the nose. More citrus in taste than in aroma, flowers and herbs are also noticeable. Round and dry finish. Very good drink under the Midnight Sun :-)

Bottle 500ml @ Haakonm
Pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus, peach, grass and hint of cooked vegetables. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

Finn (4210) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2014
Flaske 0,5l fra Kjeller 5. Lys gylden. Høyt luftig skum som varer. Litt lacing. Forsiktig syrlig fruktaroma. Smaken svakt maltig med en tørr fruktig avslutning. Litt tynn - men en god tørsteslukker.

nilsas (1405) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2014
Fin frisk duft av frukter og en anelse eikeduft. Tykt hvitt skum. Fin lys gulbrun litt dunkel farge. God frisk fruktig smak, lettdrukket og god.

gunnar (5297) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a huge frothy white head. Aroma is weak citrussy and flowery hops. Very high carbonated. Taste is light crisp hops, nutty malty body, well balanced and easy drinkable golden ale, with a light dry spicy and herbal lingering finish.

TyggaBrown (391) - NORWAY - MAR 3, 2014
Quite poor, actually. I can’t get anything out of neither taste or aroma, and in the end I actually wondered if there was anything in this one that was meant to characterize it...

djoeye (1504) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2014
Off-white foamy head, golden to slightly amber body, a bit foggy, visible small bubbles though. Scents; flowers (perfume like), apples, hops, some pale malts, undefined spicy hints. Taste; hops, apple peel, one drop lemon, two drops of grapefruit, small bite of bread. Fruity fresh to palate. Mild finish, some bitterness, slightly dry, the peel fades away together with hops, tiny malt, and a tiny tiny drop of lemon. (Abv 4.2% 500ml brown bottle, b@Kjeller5 Tromsø Norway, enjoyed@home 27.01.2014).

Rune (8065) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2014
500ml bottle from Kjeller 5 in Tromsø. Dense and frothy white head with good retention and patchy lacework. Golden body, slightly hazy. Fresh floral hoppy nose joined by pale malts. Citrus to the taste buds, lemon and orange, dusty and earthy. Clean mild bitter end, semi-dry. Soft in the mouth. Refreshing and a fine partner to a rather spicy pizza. Just the right one to celebrate the return of the sun after two months of darkness in the extreme north (Tromsø 25.01.2014).

Bottle 50 cl.
Pours golden, slightly hazy, with big frothy, off-white head. Aroma of light malt and hay. Floral hops with citrus and some herbs. A bit sweet with medium bitterness. Medium and lively body. Slightly bitter finish.

ERB92 (304) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2013
Citrus, fruits, some floral hops and pale malts in the aroma. Hazy pale golden with a white head. Light sweetness and medium bitter. Light body with a lively carbonation. Overall a OK ale, not bad but not exciting either.
