berlinmany (224) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
Lemon, grapefruity, orange peel on the nose with a sweet floral touch. Piney, grapefruity hop flavours with kiwi fruit orange and a hint of lemon. Crisp and refreshing yet dry with a lingering aftertaste.

Holmen1 (2546) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2014
Fra flaske på Mandag i annen, Cardinal okt-14: dentredje første fra Oakham denne kvelden. Klar og lys gylden med kort hvitt skum. Mer malt og mindre humle i aroma og smak enn av de foregående (Citra og Inferno), men også denne er en elegant og behagelig øl med en fint balansert bitterhet i den tørre avslutningen. Ingen grunn til å ta farvel.

Holmen2 (1016) - NORWAY - OCT 13, 2014
Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 13.10.14. Very pale golden. Small and diminishing white head. Small, but fruity aroma reminiscent of a Belgian blond. Well-balanced taste with pale malt and citrusy hops. Bitterness lingers on in aftertaste. Good drinkability.

Sigmund (5179) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2014
500 ml bottle, will soon be available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.0%. Crystal clear pale golden colour, thin white head. Beguiling aroma of floral and fruity hops, orange flowers and tropical fruits galore. Refreshing and distinctly hoppy flavour throughout, not sweet but has a hint of honey, notes of citrus and tropical fruits, a grapefruity and fairly sharp bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.
