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 draught at the Boreft Beer Festival, 2011. Lemongrass is not something I usually enjoy in a beer and, sadly, this is no exception. A little thin with a light caramel malt backbone. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle.
