A slightly hazy dark copper color with a creamy tan head. Tropical fruit cocktail and wildflowers, great scent. Honey, lemon, wood, club soda. Light flavors and a bit thin bodied, the bitter follow is nice. A very easy drinking brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - 500ml. Very nice amber body topped with an average off-white frothy head. Nice hoppy (Cascade) aroma with spicy and herbal hints. Its bitter/hoppy taste may be a bit unidimensional, but it is nice and well-balanced. Light hints of honey and brown sugar. Long and beautiful bitter finish. Nice discovery! Thanks to Oliver Twist’s (Stockholm) waiter for the suggestion.

Strong pine hop nose. Hazy, copper-orange with partial cover of white head and some minor lacing. Mild orange flavour with plenty of pine-like hops. Assertive bitterness. Somewhat thin. Rather uni-dimensional. Bottle sampled with MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere. Thanks, Per.
