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

Hermod (3170) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2011
50cl bottle. Poured golden color with a frothy head, nice lacing. Aroma is malt and citrus hops. Flavor is similar, fruity hoppy, zesty, with a sligtly bitter finish. Too thin though, not much flavor in finish.

imdownthepub (10235) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2011
Bottled, 500ml from The George & Abbotsford Hotel Beer Shop, Melrose, Scotland. Pale gold with white head. Quite a light, thinnish beer, there is a light, fruity maltiness with a hint of sweetness. The fruity sweetness lasts through the beer. A little too light.

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 31, 2011
Bottle. Clear golden with light white head. Feint nose. Light citrus notes. Fading malt character. Thin but ultimately satisfying.

Holmen1 (2467) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2012
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

tfredvik (1120) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2013
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.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 5 months before BB date, from Meny Oslo City, Oslo]

Idiosynkrasie (3811) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 10, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Surprisingly intense citrusy aroma, hints of tangerine, husk and hay. Taste is has slightly grainy and husky overtones, unspecific fruity basis close to lemon, tangerine and orange. Nice.
