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

yngwie (13216) - 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 (6012) - 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.

larsga (6146) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 18, 2009
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 (4786) - 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.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 6, 2009
Bottle (in), pouring a light golden colour with a foamy white head. A nice and healthy fruity hop aroma on a bed of juicy malt. A light mouthfeel, with the hops doing a good job of giving it a fruity flavour while still leaving it very sessionable. Just enough bitterness in the finish to bring you back for another sip. Surprised this hasn’t rated higher.

Sigmund (4958) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 2, 2009
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 4.0%. Crystal clear pale golden colour, big to moderate white head. Moderate aroma of fruity hops, hint of apricots. Light bodied and refreshing: The flavour has distinct fruity hops on a moderately sweet bakground of malts, ending in a well balanced resinous and grapefruity bitterness. A nice little summer ale this one.
