3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske 0,33l spandert av Rune og delt under samling hos ham 6 Feb 14. Veldig lys gylden. OK tett skum som etterlater mye lacing. Aromaen har preg av fersken men fotsvette lurer i bakgrunnen. Smaken er fersken. Bra - men litt for søt.

330ml bottle picked up at Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo. Shared with Finn back home. Massive lacing from a large, white foamy head. Slightly hazy golden coloured body. Dry lemony hops on the nose. Flavour profile of peach, lemon and grass. Mid-sweet, fruit hoppy ending. Fine bodied. Refreshing and quite pleasing stuff (Tromsø 06.02.2014).

25th July 2013
Hazy gold beer with a good white head. Palate is fresh and minerally crisp, semi dry. Thin malt with slight cream. Thin and semi sweet yeast in the mid. Vague grapefruit bitterness before the vaguely bitter finish. Mild bubblegum ester. Refreshing when cold!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Unclear golden body with a big, foamy white head. Nice and refreshing, but not very strong aroma of citric fruit and fresh grass. Flavor is light, pale malt, with a decent bitterness for a blonde, some fruit, grass and a bit perfumed. Medium body and moderate in aftertaste. Nice and quaffable but as most beer within the blonde style it’s not so much more than refreshing at the best. But this is definitvily a nice one.
