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.

I don’t know about this one. Perhaps a misstep for this usually superb brewery. A nice pale ale, but the lemon grass is a bit overwhelming, both in aroma and taste. After all of the double IPAs, Imperial stout, tripels, etc. at BBF, it was still a welcome ALMOST-session beer.

Sampled at Borefts Beer Festival @ De Molen, Bodegraven. Lcear yellow color, white head. Don’t smell much, just some refreshing lemon. Taste is fresh with slightly sour hints. Too much carbonation in my opinion.
