3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[on tap at EBF 2008]
Honey-apricot scotch tape aroma with some pine hops. Hazy dark yellow with a lacy, white patch on top. Quite bitter with a nice, lotus root malt complimented by fruity apricot/peach essences. Light and delicate with medium cabonation and a clean finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From tap. Pours cloudy yellow with a lacing white head. Aroma is hoppy and grapefruity with a distinct acidic/citric hops note. Smooth and slight sweet malty with a nice marmelade like fruity hops flavour on top. Bitter and slight acidic hoppy finish with a lingering fruity accent. Nice one although it was half a year old and presumeable would be more fresh hoppy in a fresher brewed version.

Tap @ EBF, 2008, Carlsberg.
Pours lightly hazy, pale golden with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma is wonderfully soft hoppy. Peach, oranges and grass. Great, dry mouthfeel with okay creaminess. Flavour is impressively hoppy without ever going too far, pine and grass dominating. Very good with great dryness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[EBF @ Copenhagen, September 2008] Average light creamy like beige head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Cloudy golden – amber color. Aroma was good hoppyness with some fruit, caramel, and mild grainy feel. Over the palate came a bit more hoppy character the in the nose. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and dry texture. Moderated bitter flavor with some counter sweetness. Dry bitter finish. Very nice and highly drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught, 6.6%. Good hop aroma, sweet and grassy. Also caramelly, perhaps from the malt. Hazy yellow colour, stable white head. The flavour is also quite hoppy, grassy and refreshing. Good body. Also some sweetness to balance the hops. Hint of yeast in the aftertaste.

Draught at SOPP 2008, Helsinki. Golden color with small head. Refreshing aroma with fair amount of lemony and raisiny hops. Bittersweet flavor with strong lemony and grapefruity hop character. Dry, chewy and bitter finish. Pleasant, drinkable and moreish, but there could be more hop complexity.
