4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Last one from my 4 pack,but not my last one from this brewery. This bottle poured an attractive amber colour with slighly more carbonation than the other in the range, an off white head . The beer smells of citrus and grapefruit which I am told is a characteristic of the american hop that was used. The taste is well balanced and interesting more delicate than the others, very drinkable. The finish is very resiny and lingering with a citrus taste which is slightly bitter and refreshing. A great beer for a hot day.

Amberfarvet klar med to fingre høyt beige skum. Lukter moden fersken, plommer og tung fudge. Middels fylde. Søtlig smak, noe kandis, sydhavsfrukt og en lett kort bitterhet mot slutten.

Fra flaske på Mi2, Cardinal (Asko Rogaland ølmesse): klar gylden, ok skum. Noe ufrisk urtearoma og -smak. Jordaktig, uinteressant. Bør antakelig kanskje igjen.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Small sample from bottle at ASKO-messe. Golden colour, white head. Very moderate aroma of fruity hops. The hops are more distinct in the flavour, fruity notes first, ends in a sharpish, very bitter and medicinal aftertaste.
