Pours clear golden color with a medium head. Aroma of grass, mild hoppy fruits and toffee. Flavor of nuts, fruits and some caramel malts. Boring and the hop profile isn’t working for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I just had to drink this one today, to celebrate a week of correcting student exams in a course on the northern lights… The body is quite hazy and has a light yellow, almost whitish colour. Cool! The white head is average, both in size and longevity. Quite strong aroma that is sweet and citric at the same time. Citric notes with lemon, fruits, ripe berries and pale malts. The initial taste is very light acidic and there is also a light to moderate sweetness that lasts into the light bitter and a bit short aftertaste. Citric lemon flavours, fruits and caramel. A decent one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A golden beer with an almost medium and white head. Aroma is fresh and aromatic, lemon, some fruits and dry malts. Taste is quite dry and biscuity, some aromatic citrusfruits, hint of honey, nice grassy and elmony bitterness. Nice taste but it’s too mild. Light bodied, slightly harsh carbonation. Nicely fresh, but the flavours are too mild.

0,5 l flaske ombord i Fridtjofen: syrlig og frisk aroma. Fint men kortvarig skum. God munnfylde. Frisk smak av citrus og bringebær. Behagelig ettersmak, kanskje en smule oljeaktig

Nice citrus flavour with a malty depth. Not too bitter nor is there a heavy alcoholic kick.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lovely light golden colour. Nice lasting soft pillowy white head. Noses hops and fresh cut coriander-citrus. Texture is light, oily bit soapy reminding again of coriander. Full body, lightly sweet with faint hints of bitterness a truly lovely balanced beer! Finish is long but pleasantly un-noticable.
