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.

Draft at Churchkey for a meet the brewer event. Poured a hazy copper color with a large white head. Aroma was lemongrass notes, lots of lemongrass, lemongrass, did I mention lemongrass? Anyway... there’s a nice herbal note to this one, some light spice. Light sweet malts.

Sehr schön. Schön grasig, wundervoll im Hopfen und im Allgemeinen passen die Zitrusnoten wunderbar. Vielleicht dann und wann etwas dünn, aber das Aroma spielt erstklassig mit.

Tap@ölhussthlm(öhs?), helsinki. Yellow, some haze. Fruity lemongrassy nose with some caramel. Dry bitter, bit sharp, body. Really like the lomegrassy lime citrus, but everything else’s a bit out of balance. Totally drinkable though, just a bit too bitter dry for me.

The beer has got a deep golden colour -light hazy- with steady head and smooth body. Nice aroma of lemon and spices. Taste of intense citrus, leaves, fresh hops, nuts and spices. Very quaffable and easy to drink - enjoyed it a lot.

On tap at Henrik in Bergen. Starts slightly sweet, lightly hopped. LIght, dry finish. Lemongrass gives it a very refreshing finish. Very drinkable. Golden color.

On tap at CBC 2012. Beer in the glass deep golden, nice head. Hoppy aroma with lemon notes. Starts mild-malty, more and more dry. Fine fruity like lemon. Some salty hints in the finish. Quite drinkable. Nice!

Tap on cardinal. Yellow clear color with small nice withe head. Nose of some ginger, some wood and spicyness, feel a nice scent of lemonzest. Flavour is a mild clean flavour of lemongrass, but could de tastyer. A nice ale to try but had bigger expectations.
