3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from COOP Trysil. Pours hazy orange with a big fluffy head that settles to small islands of scum. The aroma is most enticing, passionfruit and apricots. The taste is mainly hoppy bitterness but the malt delivers a noce backing of sweetness and finesse. Too bad it’s only 4.5%. Loved it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl bottle, batch #1356. Old friend revisited, had my first one several years ago, now it’s time for a rating... Light golden yellow, slightly hazy, lively, rolling carbonation in the glass, one-finger off-white head. Aroma is floral, tropical, bready with a slight hint of citrus. Taste give a short sting from the bittering hops, but the bitterness is quite moderate (30 IBU), so I don’t consider this to be an ESB. Flavour is light and refreshing, some citrus, and I think I can get that EKG hop taste in the back end of the aftertaste.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly cloudy appearance and a rich yellow colour. It has a very herbal/floral hop aroma with some orange peel, grass and light citrus. Nutty flavour which probably comes from Marris Otter with the East Kent Golding hops giving it the quintessentially English taste with a tea like bitterness in the finish.
