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.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2012
Draught at Copenhagen Ølfestival 2012. Hazy golden color. Sweet lemony aroma. Very lemony and herbal taste with fairly light body. A bit lemonade like.

fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2012
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.

77ships (4303) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2012
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

Cunningham (4929) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2012
Cloudy yelloworange colour with a white head. Lovely citric aroma. I could sit and smell this all night long a watch all the lovely ladies passing by. Fresh floral and citric flavour. One more please.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2012
Draft @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Dorée, col épais beige. Arôme de citronnelle, houblon fleuri et fruité avec un malt léger. En bouche, le profile citronnelle reste bien présent sans être trop en avant, le tout donne ce côté citronné frais qui tapisse un peu le palais.Pointe d’épice en fin de bouche avec un léger côté herbacé et fleuri sur un malt finement grillé.

rosenbergh (7416) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 14, 2012
Draught at Kuikka, Helsinki, Finland. Cloudy deep golden colour with small white head. Citrusy yeasty aroma with lemongrass and mild sweetness. Flavour is quite easy. Mild bitterness, malt, lemongrass and mild sourness. Drinkable but not that interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy golden look with fair white head. Sweet and citric aroma with some spices and hops. Herbal taste with some citric and honey notes. Refreshing with light bitterness. Medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation and the lemongrass feel with some light bitter finish. Ok.
