2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
It’s got a but of lager "skunk" to the aroma and that sneaks into the taste a good bit as well (see the likely reason below). Overall, it doesn’t suck, but it’s not exactly good (again, below). I can tell this has some nice hop and malt character and it’s actually well-balanced for what it is. That skunk, thankfully, isn’t highly-prominent, so I can enjoy it at least.
This is a beer that I likely wouldn’t try as I’m not the biggest New Holland fan, but Mainstreet Liquors in Countryside, IL had it on sale for $4 for a 4 pack, so I decided "well, it may not be super-fresh, but let’s give it a try anyway for that price!" I picked the one that was furthest from the blazing sun at the front of the store....really great place to put beer, but that’s why it’s on clearance, right? Overall, worth the $1 a bottle experiment.

Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2015. Hoppy smell with citrus and pale bread. Fruity and hoppy taste with citrus. Nice and hoppy.

From can at ÖÖWF2015: Aroma is floral and light. Taste is semi sweet and caramelly, orange and grapefruit. A bit anonymous, but very good bitterness in the end.

Nice golden color with a nice citrus smell. The beer is smooth with a little bitter after taste. It is a nice use of Michigan hops.

Tap at Busters. Very slightly hazy yellow-gold pour with a white dense head. Sweet malts. Mild citrus and floral nose. Citrus jumps out more on taste. Very sessionable. Good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flarra Biskopen Järntorget . Mild fruktig doft . Smakar lite ekigt typiskt för bättre pale Ale. Lätt eftersmak å mild efterbeska.. Nja en viss efterföljande äppelton ligger kvar . Ja då grönt äpple. Trevlig öl men kostar !!!! Den här typen av enklare öl (kallad törstsläckare) borde ju aldrig gå på mer än 60kr på krogen. Så prisvärd NÄÄÄ

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Busters in a pint glass. Pale golden in color with a half finger white head. Aroma has elements of floral and citrus packing a pretty aggressive nose. Taste brings the citrus rind action to the party especially making its presence felt on the finish. Definitely a clean and easy to drink option. I’m getting sweetness more so than bitterness at the onset and in the middle. Not a big punch of taste but enough to help you forget it’s a low alcohol session variety. For the style it’s pretty decent.
