3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle by SEP 12. Sweet tropical/PNW hops in the nose, quite strong, with a light doughy base. Pale clear orange body with a white head. Light body bitter with a trace of alcohol heft, there’s some dry caramel and light hop oils though it seems the hoppiness was limited mostly to the aromatics, and there’s no malt complexity to compensate. Nice chugger.

330ml Bottle - Amber with a white head. Passion fruit, grapefruit, peach and malt in the aroma. Hoppy and refreshing taste with notes of mango, grapefruit and nectarine with a good malt body. I think I will drink a fair few of these over the summer !

Clear light amber with a medium white head. Nice aroma of grapefruit, malt and caramel. The taste was very fresh with grapefruit, lemon and malt. The finish was long and bitter. I think that this might be a nice summer beer this year.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Systembolaget in Torp, Uddevalla. Clear golden body, small white head. Nose is parsley, grapefruit, melon and hints of caramel. Nice, but a bit lacking in assertiveness, even for a lightweight like this. Taste is fresh grass, bitter pine, hints of hay and burnt sugar in the back. Smooth carbonation, and all in all a pretty decent summer beer.
