oh6gdx (20253) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 4, 2013
Bottled (thanks omhper!). Hazy orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized foamy slightly off-white head. Aroma is citrus, caramel malts, mild toffee and pleasant resiny notes. Flavour is rather similar, but has a really nice floral, fruity and nectary hopping. Balanced and nice!

Vem hade trott att man skulle få klämma en Draken en gång till? Den trodde jag definitivt gått i graven. Kvällens överraskning. Aromhumlen är trött naturligtvis men den är fortfarande riktigt bra

Hazy deep gold beer, tidy off white head. Smooth palate. Semi dry. Mild carbonation. Mild minerals. Rich hops - nice blend of apricot, peach and orange with traces of lemon and grapefruit. A little creamy malt underneath but this is mostly about the hops. Semi dry finish with good bitter linger. Nice hops!

HenrikSoegaard (10420) - Randers, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle. Frothy white good mostly lasting head. Amber colour. Light malty and heavy hoppy aroma. Flowery and perfumde. Heavy bitter flavor. Long heavy bitter finish. Slightly harsh. Creamy palate. Exstremely powerfull but lacks finesse.
