3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: Lemongrass and more lemongrass
How: Tap at Aku Aku Tiki Bar, Olso Norway (the bar for which this beer is made)
The look: Cloudy blonde body topped by a medium white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass
In long: nose is obviously lemongrass, very much so, couldn’t detect anything else. In mouth the beer is an lemongrass attack of unmatched intensity. I’ve had other lemongrass beers before but compared to this beer they all made subtle use of lemongrass. This is like chewing honeyed coated lemongrass. Not a bad beer if you like lemongrass but this is really extreme. Somehow my taste buds got used to the extrem-beer and I found the second half of my glass more enjoyable than the first. A very unusual beer from Nøgne Ø, a brewery with strange beers and strange vowels.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,33l. Aku Aku, Oslo tap. Pour is slightly darker than golden, but the bar was not well lit. Aroma is citrus hops and a good helping of lemon grass. Taste is very much on the light side. Lemongrass is prominent, but it is in no way overpowering. Hop bitterness is pretty low. This is a good session brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours light hazy orange-yellow with a fine, white film for a head. Very true lemongrass aroma, lightly tangy and sharp. Very refreshing flavor, sweet lemon and orange, a bit of wet grass, hints of spices and yeast. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Some zesty citrus to finish, light dough malts, medium sweetness, some grassy dryness. A pretty solid beer. The lemongrass is well integrated. Perhaps a touch too sweet, and I wouldn’t mind some more dryness, but overall it’s very nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Danske Ølentusiasters Ølfestival 2012, Copenhagen
Cloudy dark blond color. The aroma is a bit smelly of dirty water. Weak body, simple flavor, there is a touch of lemongrass that brings freshness, dry mouthfeel, light soapy feeling, correct bitterness. Not impressive, it can be improved in many ways, starting from the aroma.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
25 cl. draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas // light yellowish amber, close to clear, huge creamy white head // smells of American pine hops, clean, sharp, rounded with a vague lemon peel edge, could be lemongrass but not necessary, almost floral // taste is clean sharp, lemon peel mellow & once again not necessary lemongrass, touch grass, it is funny I am getting lemon & grass but not necessary lemongrass, I can pick it out maybe but don’t think I would have without the name, mellow lemon peel bitterness, plenty of pale malts, bitter grass & dash lemon peel, American hops are definitely more aromatic here than anything else // cork dry, nicely bitter, this is a quite lovely summer beer // a lot better than score appears to indicate, this is exactly what it strives to be in intend or at least that is how I feel
