Hazy yellow with bright white head and strong lacing. Aroma is earthy with green leafy hop, cress and some sweet pea shoots. Initial flavours are sweet, malty and earthy. Pleasant dry hoppy finish.

jerd16 (131) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Pours light amber with lasting 2-finger head. Aroma is orange pith, some floral and woody notes. Orange replicated in the taste, malt is very subtle and bready, short subtle bitterness. A relatively boozy APA. Introverted but respectable.

Countbeer (4042) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized white foamy head on top of a hazy lighter yellow colored beer. Aromas of citrus, herbs, grains, light stingy, some puke, some hops, a light floral touch and some slight malt tones with some hair and perfume. Strange aroma! Flavours of bitters, herbs, some floral hops, yeast, malts, plant bitters, grass, yeast, hay, cardboard, grapefruit, citrus, some dull pine apple, some dust, strange stingy grassy herbs, some earth, perfume, cardboard and hair. Aftertaste is a mix of herbs, hops, citrus, grapefruit, cardboard, malts, bitters and some hair. Low carbo, creamy light spicy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture. Strange beer, not bad, but expected something better than this...

Holmen1 (2001) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2014
Flaske, batch 1035, hjemme: en herlig citrusduft pirrer nesen mens jeg skjenker, dette lover godt! Smaken innfrir til fulle, og kvelden synes perfekt. Hva skal jeg ta etter denne, mon tro? Kanskje bare la den synke inn og avslutte ettersom jeg bare kjøpte en (big mistake).
