Fruity, malty taste with notes of tropical fruit, grapefruit, bready malt, apricots, orange marmalade and fresh floral hops in a finish with a generous bitterness. Medium body, quite dry.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma of tropical fruits and biscuit, the fruitiness is very nice here. Taste is also hop forward with a peach/pineapple drive and a light caramel base. Refreshing bitterness leaning on the grassy side, and an aftertaste of tropical fruit, berries and grass. A good summer ale I imagine.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle from Bierzwerg!
The beer in the glass is golden and clear, with high, fine white head. It smells pleasantly citrus-hoppy, very fruity and slightly resinous. Starts intensely hoppy-bitter, with lots of grapefruit, tropical fruit and some pine wood. The middle part is intensely hoppy, bitter, spicy and very resinous. Goes into a fruity hoppy finish with some pine wood and herbs. Very complex Pale Ale!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flaske: Clear, golden with an orangey sheen, small and stable white head, solid dry piney and fruity hop-aromas in the nose; very robust and dry bitter-sweet flavour, almost medium bodied and pretty soft; hops sticking to the palate in the dryish fruity-hoppy finish, all balanced by pale malt. Great beer...

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a crystal clear golden one with a small bubbly and sidesticking off-white head. Smells hoppy and a bit fruity, almost pungent hoppy, but not in a directly bad way either. Tomatoes and nettles. Interesting. Quite hoppy, yet extremely balanced! Did not expect this. Comfortably carbonated with a soft slick mouthfeel. Fruity melon and some nice citrus. Soft dry and slick finish. Not bad at all. 22.08.2012
