3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Tap @ Gastropub Nordic. Rated @ 3.7.2010.)
A bit cloudy orange colour with a creamy white head that keeps up nicely. Fresh aroma with hints of citrus, grass and floral hops. Same elements on the taste but with malt added. Light on the palate with a hoppy finish. Balanced summer beer.

Pint, Akkurat, Stockholm.
Hazy yellow body, white head. Very nice fruity apricot aroma, with lots of light complexicity. Flowery saaz-pilsner like hoppiness, but still strongly in the american hoppy side. Some notes of cassis.
Excellent and very enjoyable beer.

I love the label. Perfectly serviceable pale ale, and actually, as it settled in it I realized that it had a really nice balance, with an obvious citrus and hop profile, and though it doesn’t have what I would call particular malt balance, it felt proportioned and easy to drink. Very nice. (On tap at Akkurat, Stockholm)

Thanks Omhper for this tip, I really like it. Tap in Akkurat. Cloudy golden cololr with an amazing white head that keeps until finish. Aroma is complex with some floral hops, citrus fruit, some orange drops, really good. Flavor is a mixing of refreshing, bitter, citrus and quite dry. Mouthfeel is long and really different. I could feel sweetness and dryness with some citrus on! Good one!!!

It didn’t look to appealing with its watery yellow colour. But there was nothing wrong with the taste. A very drinkable beer that was fresh with tastes of fruity hops and malt. Can imagine drinking more of this on a hot summers day.
