caramel, apple juice, some fruit and citrus in the aroma. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium + bitter. Light body with a average carbonation. Bitter and dry finish. Overall totally OK, but not something to remember.

Palme (2988) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
0.5l bottle. A light blurry golden looking one this and it has a small bubbly light lacing white top. It smells of diacetyl and thin watery hops. Not sure itís meant to smell like this, cause there is nothing pure or golden about this aroma. A bit better in the taste, no make that much better in the taste. Still, itís definitely nothing to extraordinary this. A mild gentle but definitely present grassy hoppiness with traces of both caramel and whatís left after the wort. Light mouthdrying in the finish and aftertaste. Horrible aroma and a fair (dull) flavor profile with a nice hoppy punch. 25.12.2013

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a light golden body with a small white head. Nose is sweet heather floral tones, sugary notes, pale malts and hints of red berries. Taste is sharp acidic tones up front, bitter herbs, pale malts and hints of grains. Light body, medium carbonation. Too sharp and bitter, not fruity enough or even very drinkable. Not very impressive, all in all.

gunnar (4863) - Sandnes, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle from LerÝy Mat, Bergen. Pours clear golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma of grains and citrus. Taste is juicy and crisp citrus hops, light dry finish, refreshing beer with a short lived taste.

500ml bottle from Beer Hawk - Pours a very clear golden colour with a medium fully diminishing white head. Aroma is soft malty/yeasty with notes of flowers, ripe fruits and citrus. Flavour is sweet, fruity and tart. orange, grapes and peaches. Light body, low carbonation. Soft, fruity finish. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Grumbo (493) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Cask handpump at The Bricklayers, Colchester. Light golden colour, slightly off white head. Citrusy, very smooth and easy drinking. Palate probably the high point. Overall didnít really enjoy this much - I recall having enjoyed it more bottled before, which is unusual.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 Cask version - superbly smooth golden ale, very nice in the palate, it matters little that the aroma and taste is low.
