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.

super session beer. Pours light with a nose of spicey lemoney, lemoney hops tastes great. Really drinkable. Suprised it is rated so low, because in my humble opinion, it is probably the best session beer available from nøgne Ø with its fresh lemon notes and great balance.

Doften är fruktansvärt tvålig och parfymerad blommig. Smaken är stort sätt….ja… vad är den den smakar? Det ska visst vara sitrongräs, men jag är inte övertygad. Visst är den frisk men den har potential att bli ganska jobbig efter ett tag.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2012 On tap at Haand beer festival 2012. Hazy orange colour with a very small white head. Aroma is hoppy with notes of citrus and lemongrass. Some regular grass and perhaps apples. Flavour is fresh and bitter, but not very bitter. A tad watery, but not in a bad way. Notes of hops, citrus, lemongrass and apples. A refreshing summer ale that I really hope will be available in bottles soon.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2010
(Draught@Pikkulintu, sampled 2010-02-18) Very hazy golden with a smallish and lacy, partly lasting head. Fresh, citrusy, slightly tart nose. Flavor is slightly sweet and tart with lemony, aromatic hops but not much bitterness. Almost medium body with lots of CO2. Quite pleasant and fresh, easily drinkable summer brew.

6 Big lemony aroma, very sweet. Alas reminds me of lemon fresh floor cleaner than anything else
3 Hazy deep yellow, tiny head
5 Zingy zesty orange taste, behind that, the beer’s rather shy.
3 Simple refreshing palate, quite sweet, but not sticky
11 Underwhelms me, a bit of a gimmick. Very few signs of beer behind the spice.
