2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Meny Oslo City enjoyed at home
Golden clear, white head. Smells of spices and honey, some resins and hops. Quite wak and boring actually. Moderate sweet, woody, some honey and grain. Moderate bitter, hints of resins and wood. Not at all like an APA to me; where is the hops?

35,5cl bottle from Meny Oslo City. Pours almost clear golden with a white head. Mild hoppy and malty aroma with citrus, fruity notes and hints of peaches, pine and caramel. Moderate sweet with a fairly light bitterness. Pretty light bodied, but refreshing and easy to drink. Slightly boring, but sessionable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Funky little 12oz bottle pours with a clear deep gold body that supports a near white head of foam. The aroma offers up mild notes of pine and spicy dank onion hoppiness with a light Pilsner like maltiness in the background. The taste begins with a modest degree of bitter hops like pine and earthy spiciness but they’re a bit tough to discern. It then picks up some smooth malt notes to midway as the hop taste develops a bit of a citrus side to it. Darn tasty session brew.

12oz bottle at Coney Island. Pours pale amber with white head. Nose is citrus and light caramel. Sip introduces cardboard and floral hops. Light to medium body. Mildly bitter for style. Meh.

Faint aroma, pours a brilliant straw/Amber with a dense head good lacing. It’s smooth and malty somewhat subdued defiantly drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Meny Oslo City. Clear god. Nice citrus hops in the nose. Malty, rather sweet, lemon flavour. Nothing wrong with this, there is a nice orange twist in the tail, yoo, but it is not very sophisticated.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden light amber pour with ring offwhite head. Mild hoppy corny aroma. Flavor is more potent, yet moderate punch of floral hops. Watered down pale ale character. Not bad, and quite sessionable actually. For what it is trying to be, it’s pretty damn spot on.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle from sampler pack, thin head, not a ton of flavor but fairly crisp finish. Crushable, as in you can beer bong it if you want to.
