2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Hazy golden pour with a small, short-lived rocky white head. Aroma has notes of honey, orange, grain, wood and with a hint of cucumber. Flavour is less fruity but more malty, more grainy and more vegetal, with hints of grass and mineral. Dry, almost dusty mouthfeel with moderate to high carbonation and a lingering dry, slightly bitter finish. Not great but not terrible either; drinkable but not particularly interesting.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pretty much a light, fruit, very easy going blonde. Nice enough and pairs well with food (had it at Cantina and went well with the Spanish tappiste stuff)

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
(bottle) Poured a cloudy amber with little white head. Aroma was pleasant - lychee, honey, faint perfume. Medium bodied, well carbonated. The flavour had some rather harsh notes too it, although there was some nice honey and peppery spice too. Quite drinkable, but not great; worked well with spicy food.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle, as Rosita Original, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo. ABV is 5.5%. Imported to Norway by Moestue Grape Selections AS. According to the Norwegian rear label, this is a spontaneously fermented ale (not sure if that is entirely true), with a secondary fermentation in the bottle. Hazy golden colour, large to low white head, decent lacing. Strong sweetish and "unfresh" aroma, distinct notes of stale marmalade and decaying / rotting fruits. The flavour is somewhat better than the aroma, wheaty and fairly refreshing character with hints of citrus. Won’t buy again though.

Palate long but not completely equilibrated.
