Om tap at Patricks. It pours a hazy golden-orange body under a finger thick off-white head. There’s lots of citrus peel in the aroma. Resin and grapefruit in large amounts, and beefstocky malty sweetness as a backdrop. Some tropical fruits too. Full-bodied and chewy with a little warmth. Bitter citrusy and resiny flavor where the malts do a little more work than I would prefer. Bitter, citrus peel finish. A lovely but a bit out of balance maybe. Or maybe the problem is that there’s too much balance between the malts and the fruity flavors and the bitterness is reaching too high levels. Don’t really know, but hope to find out soon. I’ll definately have more of this. 100707

Mild grassy hop aroma. Almost clear amber colour. Small white head. The flavour is sweetish with a good hop flavour, distinct bitterness and a grassy hop.

Pale amber color, small white head, lace. Medium-bodied. Light front, sweetish exotic fruityness. Late, long lingering bitterness. A bit unbalanced, but has recognizable Nogne O finger prints.
