In short: A refreshing fruity thirst blond beer. Nice
How: Tap at Tre Små Rum, at Göteborg Sweden
The look: Clear blonde body topped by small white head
In long: Nose is light color fruits that is as much yeast fruity than hops fruity, also notesof peppery hops. Taste is crackery pale malts, pineapples and other tropical fruits, fun white-pepper-ish spiciness, light acidity. This felt like a cross between a fruity spicy Belgian blond ale and a fruity blond APA. The end result is a very nice thirst beer, packing a lot of stuff with a hopping well integrated with the rest of the beer providing refreshing flavors with very little actual bitterness. Another good Swedish beer, my stay in Sweden went by so fast, certainly it is true that flies when you’re having fun, but what does it do when you’re bored, does time take the bus?

Taste is slightly sweet, bitter and very tiny sour with grapefruit juice, lemon zest, slightly dry grass, moist soil, pine, bread and hints of earthy tobacco.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2011 Pours golden yellow with a big, frothy white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, and a touch of pungent grass. Very much IPA stuff. Taste is more APA, with less bitterness and a weaker finish. The hops are still clearly present, but body is very light and the bitterness is quite mellow. Again, pine and citrus. A very drinkable beer.

Golden colour and thick white head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine resin and fresh pineapple. Combined with a well balanced bitterness and a light body it all ads up to a very refreshing APA. Truly a beer to pine for (sorry).

On tap. I didn’t like this beer too much. This doesn’t mean it is not good of course but I found it a little bit cloying. Maybe it’s not my favorite genre. Maybe the pineapple and the pine resin taste combination didn’t give me a completely pleasant sensation.

Big thanks to Diego for this one.
A: Pours a nice goldish hue of yellow with a nice tall white head. Left plenty of chunky lace behind.
S: Wonderful hoppy aromas. Lots of lemon and orange, subtle notes of pine.
T: Great tasting and refreshing, great way to kick of Hunahpus morning. Wonderful zesty lemon, hints of orange and pine sweetness. Subtle grassy notes as well. A very very well made pale ale, one of the best I have ever had quite honestly.
M: On the lighter side of medium, perfect carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Oliver Twist in Stockholm, Sweden. The pour is a hazed orange with a massive, whipped cream, sheen, rocky, superlative IPA head. Infinite retention. Could probably lay a penny on the head without it sinking. Aroma is heavy orange candy, orange peel, grapefruit. Taste is juicy and rich up front but then moves to citrus, soapy, bitter, and a bit sickly sweet at a certain point. Palate is dry, soapy, bitter. More like an English IPA.
