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.

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 (6641) - 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.

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.

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 (2378) - 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.
