OK, here goes. I want ambience in as a scoremark. I had this beer for 2.9 untill this happend to me.
In the process of going from huge beers to finding the ultimate everydatdrinkingbeer, this gem shows up again and hits me right in the solar plexus. For that two-beer-session-on-an-everyday-weeknight it has it all. All I can say is "US ale" and "balance", It jst sums it all up for me. Exelent dance withthe ingridients; a fine earthy, yet pine-ish and fruity nose. Maltflavours with a superb carbonation. And, again, that perfectly US-style balance of the hops. Finished 3 bottles within an hour, before even speaking one word of the love I felt from the first sip, just had to be sure. Now, all I need is a local brewery to make a beer like this nectar. Christian? Mikkel?

Bottle. Nice fruity hops on the nose. Decent reddish amber body and a small head. Tastes like a standard plus grade medium malty hoppy ale. Very clean, finishes easy with a little toffee flavor. Not bad at all.
