3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber pour with an off-white head. A bit of sweet caramel and toffee. Some earthy hops, mild pine, and toasted bread. Just an okay nose. The flavor is a bit on the sweet side with plenty of toast, bread, and toffee notes. Citrus peel and floral hops, a light pine note, and some earth. Subtle bitterness on the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light brown, quite clear, beige head. Dough, brown sugar, twigs, resin. Light sweet and quite nice. Full enough body and both classic yet with full modern hop taste. A sipper bit I like it. (On tap at Borefts 2012)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at HaandFestival 2012. A small, dense, beige head sits on top of a hazy, light amber colored body. The aroma has pine cones, citrus peel and some maltyness, but it’s the hops that run the show. The flavor though is more on the malty side, with caramel sweetness as a backdrop for light peachy hops and some bitterness. Full-bodied and smooth on the palate, and finishing bitter and fruity. Although a bit on the sweet side, it’s sure a tasteful and pleasant beer. 120504
