3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
.5l glass from the tap at Glenfiddich Warehouse #68.
This a deep gold pour but totally clear, interestingly so. Four fingers of tope head, lasting several minutes. Solid retention and lacing...The aroma is super sweet, way to sweet without being a fruit beer. Sweet is like high fructose corn syrup, hints of lemon, coriander and hops on the end. The taste is also way to sweet, cannot drink this very easily or quickly. Just get sweetness with a light hop finish.
This was a servers recommendation and not a great one. Its way to sweet and just boring, nothing worth getting here.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Pours out in a hazy dark golden colour with a dense off-white head. Seville oranges, lemons, crackers, vanilla, mild grassy hops and apricots and apricots. Medium-bodied with strong notes of bourbon, vaniila and coconut, almonds and apricots with undertones of orange-peels. Long medium-bitter finsih of almonds, apricots and wood. This one has a big barrel character without being barreled. Tasty but weird.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear blonde body with a small white top. Nose is candy sugar, vanilla and hints of Belgian yeast. Taste is molasses and dry hops, with some metallic tones coming along mid-palate. Drinkable, but a bit simple makeup that certainly does not match the commercial description at all (for those who can read Swedish). A fair enough summer brew, but I’m honestly not very impressed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Pours golden with a small off-white head. Thai food notes up font in the aroma: lime, lemon grass, coconut milk and coriander alongside a bready and light toffee-ish malt foundation. Undertones of juniper, oak, vanilla ice cream, cotton candy and mint. Juicy hints of fruit salad also notable - pineapple, oranges, oxidized banana and tart, unripe mango. Sadly, a blanket of buttery, plastic and acetone-ish hints hides the subtle tones of the aroma. The flavour is light sweet, light to medium bitter and light tart sourish. Notes of juicy orange/lemon lemonade, bready/grainy malt, syrup, cotton candy light apricot, spices, grass and mild herbs. The mouthfeel is clean, a bit tad tart, light round and smooth carbonated. The finish holds green apples, grapefruit and earthy spices. Maybe a whisper of phenols. Medium bodied.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @Pikkulintu. Poured slightly hazy orange color with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity and yeasty, hard to put in words all the aromas. But really nice on the nose. Flavor is lemon, spices, yeast and hops. Bitter finish. Quite nice, very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a hazy golden liquid with a small white head. also had floating bits of yeast in the liquid. Sweet smell of candy and honey. Similar taste with some yeast. Smooth mouthfeel and low carbonation. Very sweet with lots of honey. The hops was probably gone by now, had the bottle stored for quite a while.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with a slight haze and a small, creamy head. Sweet, somewhat yeasty aroma with notes of citrus. Flavour is sweet and fruity with loads of zesty grapefruit; a little bit too much zesty grapefruit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaske: Orange klar øl med et kæmpe skumhoved. Duften er sorachi men ikke så dominerende. Let dild, men gæren blander sig. Smagen er frisk og igen sorachi men ikke fuldkommen. Bedre i IPA. Fin øl, men lidt højt prismærke.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Nils Oscar is not my favorite brewery, to be honest. I don’t like their characteristic vegtable/yeast/way too sweet maltiness profile that i find in their beers. This one also had a touch of alcohol that reminds me of a maltl liqour beer. Big bodied though.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle @ home. Medium gold, maybe a bit dull. White head, dies rather quickly. Quite spicy nose, yeasty, hops, wheat. Medium bodied, dry, quite malty/wheaty, with aromatic yeasty and hoppy notes. Medium long finish. I expected more complexity, and more expressive Sorachi hop notes. Not bad, though.
