"A light and refreshing beer. A surprisingly full mouth-feel with a superior balance of malt and hop, and a rewarding fruit finish."

MoritzF (8677) - Bochum, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2009
(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a fluffy white foam. Slightly sweet and juicy pale malty aroma with notes of citrus and woody, slightly sweaty hops. Moderately bitter flavour, light bodied with a moderately carbonated dry mouthfeel. Fruity and subtle grainy taste, accompanied by slightly flowery and woody hops; quite dry and moderately bitter finish with present hops character. Likeable pale Ale. 02.XI.09

yngwie (14628) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2009
Bottle. A pale, yellowish beer topped by a decent white head. Citrusy, almost tea-like nose with pale malts in the back. Lovely citrusy flavor with some pale malts. Maybe a bit one-dimensional, but tasteful and refreshing. Quite dry, and with a citrusy finish where also some bitterness shows up. Sure a decent beer, with good quenching qualities. 090720

KnutAlbert (6299) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 27, 2009
Bottle from Centra. Clear golden beer. Avoids the usual trap of British golden ales, as it is not too sweet. Well balanced malt and hops, cereals, citrus, crisp finish.

Big offwhite lasting head. Yellow body with light carbonation. Fruity floral mealy hoppy aroma with citric malty pea notes. Fantastic harmony. Dry-sweetish floral citric peas taste with peppery mealy grassy notes. Smooth mouthfeel. Clean, fresh palate. Fullish body. Dry chalky floral straw and malts aftertaste with pea and biscuit notes. Excellent and highly drinkable. (0.5l bottle, Centra, Oslo.)

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 9, 2009
500 ml bottle from Meny Liertoppen. Clear pilsner golden. Mostly diminishing fingerthick white head. Mild earthy and fruity hop aroma. Taste is light sourish, semi-dry pale malts, earthy, almost resiny bitterness, and a faint citrussy fruitiness. Medium to light body strenght. Finishes superdry, with a lingering fruity bitterness. A quenching one, nice session beer.
