Bottle, LCBO. Dark yellow, medium creamy white head. Aroma of hay, cereal, and a vit of yeast as well. Mouthfeel is full; a surprise for the style, and adds greatly to the beer. taste is decent - sort of tinny hops you come to expect fr0m European lagers, but also a nice amount of bready and cereal like malt as well. This one grew on me - I was not impressed at first, but through the whole glass quite a bit of flavour emerged. Certainly a cut above in this category.

visionthing (2733) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2014
33cl bottle at The Laundromat café, Reykjavik. Pours clear deep golden with a lasting, off-white head. Fairly fruity aroma with some floral notes, pale malt and hints of honey. Moderate sweet with mild, but pleasant fruity flavours and soft bitterness in the finish. Pleasant.

Appearance: Clear deep golden color with a white head that leaves an ok lacing.
Aroma: Hoppy, some butterscotch and fruity.
Palate: Medium body. Tad sweet and a moderat bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Fruity, mild citric hoppy, mild malty and mild herbal.
Overall impression: Decent and ok. Still a little bit boring ale.

Bottle in my Copenhagen hotel room. Thanks again to Rune, such a generous lovely Ratebeerian. Hazy gold beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and dry. Light airy malt, some floralness. Trace of apple tang and a touch of paper. Light airy finish. Not great.

Bottle., at Jomfruin in Reykjavik. Surprised to see that it’s a California common style! Delicate florals and clean pale malts. Very enjoyable, surprisingly aromatic.

Very rich and flavorful with an almost perfect balance of hops that highlights the creamy malt base.

Above average, but nothing special as i remember it. Citrus and forestry-aromas from the hops with some malt sweetness.
