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.

On tap at Henrik, Bergen. Pours a clear light yellow colour with a small off-white head. Aromas of lemon, soap and grass. Light flavours of hay, grass and grains. Slick mouthfeel, and light bitterness. An okay ale, and is easy-drinking.

Holmen1 (2316) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2012
Fra fat på Cardinal: apa med en anelse sitrongress, et lettdrikkelig og forfriskende sommerøl. Håper det blir fast inventar på Cardinal.

Vignale (2005) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2012

laiti (5574) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2012
Draught @ Ølfestival København 2012
Aroma feels like a witbier with citron and hints of wheat. Flavour is rather simple with wheat and hints of citrus. Very straightforward and somewheat watery stuff, could work for a thirst.
