COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: Originally a special brew made for Aku Aku Tiki Bar in Oslo, but some kegs found their way to other pubs as well. Later on changed name to Lemongrass as Aku Aku Tiki Bar quit buying it.

Idiosynkrasie (4923) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Lemongrass aroma, citrusy hoppy overtones, slightly biscuity, pale malty basis. Taste is citrusy hoppy, notes of lemon and lemongrass, slightly sweet, biscuity, pale malty basis; the citrusy freshness fades away, more earthy and slightly waxy lemongrass notes remain in the finish; (too) lively carbonation.

metalspice (302) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2015
Lyst gyllent med høyt og kompakt skum. Sitrongresset er veldig fremtredende i duften sammen med lett karamell. Masse sitrongress også i smaken, så mye at det fører til noen beske nyanser i avslutningen. Friskt øl med noen merkelige toner.

TET (2116) - FINLAND - JUL 2, 2015
Nøgne Ø Lemongrass bottle. A golden beer, strongly bubbling, even with careful pouring the head is big, crowing and blond. Aroma has lots of lemongrass, lemon, some tropical fruits and sharp diskwashing detergent. Taste has lemon, fresh grass and some spicyness of coriander. Taste is more balanced than aroma. Almost medium bodied, strong carbonation. Good beer for a hot summer day as today, just as the etiquette says. Lemon and grass or lemongrass, refreshning.

AshtonMcCobb (3936) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden with a light haze. Decent head. Nose - lemon grass definitely, but also something quite sweet. Taste - confected lemongrass, like lemongrass jam, if such a thing exists. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a finish that could be a bit cleaner, to be honest. Overall - decent, if a bit sweet.

colui72 (261) - HONG KONG - JUN 17, 2015
Hazy golden, big head that fades out quickly. Aroma of grass rather than lemongrass. Malty and easy to drink. Not the best from Nøgne, but refreshing.

Hell gewürziger Antrunk, mittelstarker Hopfen. Deutliche und runde Zitronengrasnoten, weich, minimal herb. Spritzig, zum Ende allerdings schnell abnehmend und etwas trocken. Süffiges Sommerbier. 7/10/13/9/11/11

IPAgutten79 (770) - Skui, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2015
Gylden med medium hvitt skum. Aroma av malt, sitrus og humle. Noe karamell. Smaken er malt og karamell. Noe sitron i smaken. Savner fruktighet og mer bitterhet, for malttung. Medium konsistens.
