2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at HaandFestival 2012. It’s a lightly unclear beer, golden in color and topped by a small, off-white head. Citrus and some biscuity grains in the aroma, rather simple and boring. Citrus dominates the flavor, with some pale malts and a faint touch of diacetyl in the far, far back. Pleasant bitterness all the way. Soft on the palate, medium body. An easy drinkable and tasteful summerbeer. 120504

Tasted on its own and through a Randall at Haand. The. Ormal version has lots of tropical fruits, pineapple, cirus, lemongrass in the nose and a balanced smooth taste. The Randall version has a massive nose, like snorting pineapples and mangoes. Very nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. Sampled both with Randall and without. The score is based on the original version as I found the Randall to grassy and bitter in flavor. Almost clear orange/golden with a light white head. Nice aroma of tropical fruit. Flavor is sweet malty, fruity, balanced bitter, some grass and hint of yeast. Medium body and fruity bitter aftertaste. Pretty smooth. Nice without going wild in any direction – and then came the Randall……….
