3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. March 2011.
Pours golden yellow with a frothy white head. Strong grapefruit aromas, some pine and grass. Very fresh and green. No sweetness at all. The taste is also lacking sweetness which makes for a very dry and refreshing beer that go well with food. The taste is grassy with a citrusy, grass taste. Pretty bitter!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma is quite rich with some roasty notes and some dough from the yeast. Some minor floral notes and some grass from the hops but nothing that stands out. It pours a light golden colour with a thick foam that leaves a lot of lacing. Taste is medium bitter with some roasted tones. Mouthfeel is great, just the right amount of carbonation.

Bottle. Golden colour. Slight haze, but the head dissipate quick. Nice lacings.
Aroma is sweet fruits, mainly dried apricots, plum, sweet malt in the background, a hint of grapefruit, hint of yeast and hint of phenols.
